Dine & Rhyme

Dine & Rhyme is BOA's one-and-only annual fundraising event. Featuring poetry readings, author talks, food & drink, and great company, it's a night to celebrate BOA's past, present, and future. All Dine & Rhyme proceeds to BOA's mission to bring exceptional and essential works of literature to the public. We couldn't do it without your support!

For more information on the event and sponsorship opportunities, please contact Kelly Hatton at or 585.546.3410 ext. 13.

Our 20th Anniversary Dine & Rhyme was a celebration of international poetry and the art of translation featuring the author of Lighthouse for the Drowning, Jawdat Fakhreddine, and co-translator (and Jawdat's daughter), Huda Fakhreddine. Thanks to the Fakhreddines, our event sponsors and donors, and all who attended!



they are home,

the land and the sky to us

and everything in between"
