We know you won't want to miss Dine & Rhyme this year because our featured poets are Dorianne Laux and Nin Andrews, and the event is being held in celebration of The Collected Poems of Lucille Clifton 1965-2010, to be published by BOA in early September. In addition to reading from their own works, Dorianne and Nin will be reading selected poems from the forthcoming Clifton Collection. The readings will take place at 3pm in the Auditorium of the Memorial Art Gallery, and the reception, dinner, and silent auction will begin at 5pm at Good Luck Restaurant. Tickets for the reading portion of the event are $20 in advance and $25 at the door, and full event tickets are $125/person ($90 of which constitutes a charitable contribution). For advance reservations, or to become a sponsor of Dine & Rhyme, contact Melissa Hall at 585.546.3410 x 11, or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Mark your calendars folks -- BOA's 15th annual Dine & Rhyme is less than two months away! For those of you unfamiliar with this fantastic event, Dine & Rhyme is BOA's annual fundraiser, consisting of a poetry reading and book signing by nationally recognized BOA poets followed by a reception, dinner, and silent auction. All proceeds from the event go toward the publication of BOA books. As an independent publisher, we rely on grant funding from public and private sources as well as individual contributions to make the publication of our wonderful books possible and to get them into the hands of our dear readers.
