To Walk in My Native Place New and Selected Poems by Bernadette McCarrick
"The idea for a book of poems and photographs came to life in a conversation between my brother Pat and myself early i March. So, we embarked on the project having agreed that our work would coalesce around the nucleus of our shared roots i our native place. We envisioned a poetry book, with photographs that would be like a backdrop, a quiet enhancing presence, a complementary art form alongside the poems."
"The poems in this collection are a lovingly observed portrait of the poet's home place. Each poem captures a moment, a place or a evet i a language that is evocative yet the individual grace of the poet's ow, distinctive voice. These are poems to read and enjoy while sitting in front of your stove, or lying on the grass of your garden on a warm summers day."
