Fellow poet, Jim Peterson, has written about Libby’s new book:

“These poems by Libby Bernardin are keenly sensitive to nature.  They also embody the losses, fears, sorrows, loves and simple pleasures of life lived deeply—a quiet mind seeing, and yes, reflecting, but never looking away from what has gone so wrong and so right in these times.  Bernardin’s poems reveal without explaining.  They conjure her beloved South Carolina—lowcountry wetlands, city streets and suburbs, mountains, the people and their endeavors—and yet at the same time embrace the unknowable.”


South Carolina poet Libby Bernardin is the author of Stones Ripe for
Sowing (Press 53, 2018) and two chapbooks, The Book of Myth (SC
Poetry Initiative, 2009) and Layers of Song (Finishing Line Press, 2011).
Journal publications include The Asheville Poetry Review, Southern
Poetry Review, Kakalak. She has won poetry awards from the Poetry
Society of South Carolina and the North Carolina Poetry Society, and
has served as co-director of the highly respected Litchfield Tea & Poetry
Series until 2019. Her new book, House in Need of Mooring (Press 53,
2022), is yet another testament to the silver lining of the pandemic. A
retired English teacher from the University of South Carolina, she leads
poetry workshops for the Georgetown County Library. She is a lifetime
member of the Board of Governors of the SC Academy of Authors.
