Three New York poets published by the Ohio-based small press read from their latest work. This event launches Shapiro's newest collection, Child with a Swan's Wings.

Biographical Information: Anne Whitehouse is the author of six poetry collections, including two from Dos Madres Press—The Refrain (2012) and Meteor Shower (2016). Her novel, Fall Love, has recently been published in Spanish translation as Amigos y amantes. In April, she presented her short story, “Abby,” with Bottom Dog Press at the Appalachian Studies Conference. Her essay, “Poe vs. Himself,” is included in the current issue of New England Review; a second essay, “Poe and Chivers,” appeared in December in Rascal Journal.
