Founded in Loveland, OH, in 2004 by Robert J. Murphy, Dos Madres Press is dedicated to the belief that the small press is essential to the vitality of contemporary literature as a carrier of the new voice and new works by established poets, as well as the older, sometimes forgotten voices of the past. Six Dos Madres poets with roots or branches in New York City will gather this fall as the Red Harlem Readers series as Suite hosts the press for October. Books, beautifully designed by Elizabeth Murphy of Dos Madres, will be available at the event. The reading will be hosted by John Foy.
