Glorious Island Spring

An enchanting evening dedicated to Greece and Springtime and to the poet Don Schofield.

Born in Nevada and raised in California, Don Schofield has been living in Greece since 1980.

During that time, he has been writing, traveling extensively and teaching at various universities-Greek, American and British.

Fluent in Greek, a citizen of both his homeland and his adopted country, he has published several poetry collections, including The Flow of Wonder, In Lands Imagination Favors and Before Kodachrome, as well as The Known: Selected Poems [of Nikos Fokas], 1981 – 2000 and Kindled Terraces: American Poets in Greece.

He is a recipient of the Allen Ginsberg Award (US), the John D. Criticos Prize (UK) and a Stanley J. Seeger Writer-in-Residence fellowship at Princeton University.

His first book, Approximately Paradise, was a finalist for the Walt Whitman Award, and his translations have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and the Greek National Translation Award.

Dos Madres Press just published his latest book, A Different Heaven: New & Selected Poems.

Currently, he lives in both Athens and Thessaloniki.
