Kindled Terraces

July 2004


A very special evening celebration of poetry was held on Saturday, 29 May at the Archilochos Hall.

The evening comprised a number of readings by poets included in Don Schofield’s “Kindled Terraces - American Poets in Greece” (available at Bizas Bookstore) and was organized by the University of La Verne, Athens (www.laverne.edu.gr) and HISA – Hellenic International Studies in the Arts (http://www.hisa-studyabroad.com).

Participating poets were Adrianne Kalfopoulou, Mark Sargent, Don Schofield, Jeffrey Carson, Becky Sakellariou, Donald Brees, Barry Tagrin and Steve Rood. Also present by special invitation were well-known American writers Jack Gilbert and Linda Gregg.

Jack Gilbert has been a recipient of many major awards including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Arts award, the Yale Series of Younger Poets, and the Lannan Poetry award. Linda Gregg, also a recipient of many awards, most recently a Lannan Literary Fellowship and the Sara Teasdale Award, teaches at Princeton University. They have both spent many years in Greece and drawn much of their creative energy from the Greek landscape and classical environment.
