Poet Joseph Green Sends 'A Postcard From Salamanca'

Elizabeth Austen

Poet Joseph Green's new collection, "That Thread Still Connecting Us" (Moonpath Press, 2012) captures both the durability and complexity of the relationship between children and their parents, even after death. His poem, "A Postcard From Salamanca," reveals a son far from home, absorbing his father's passing.

Green's previous collections are "His Inadequate Vocabulary" (1986), "Deluxe Motel" (1991), "Greatest Hits 1975–2000" (2001) and "The End Of Forgiveness" (2001). He was PEN Northwest's Boyden Wilderness Writer for 2000 at the Dutch Henry Homestead in Oregon's Rogue River Canyon. In 2002, he held a residency at Fundacion Valparaiso, in Mojacar, Spain.

He earned a bachelor of arts in history at California State University in Long Beach, and a master of arts in English, creative writing, from Western Washington University. He taught creative writing at Lower Columbia College in Longview, Wash. for 25 years. His reading was recorded in the KUOW Studios on March 9, 2012.
