Dine & Rhyme is BOA's one-and-only annual fundraising event. Featuring poetry readings from Chen Chen, Keetje Kuipers, and Geffrey Davis, and a celebratory video in honor of 20 years of the Poulin Prize, it's a night to celebrate BOA's past, present, and future. All Dine & Rhyme proceeds support BOA's mission to bring exceptional and essential works of literature to the public.

A Dine & Rhyme Sponsorship is a great way for businesses, organizations, and universities to show their support for BOA and independent publishing! Dine & Rhyme Sponsors reach an audience of arts supporters and community leaders at the event and via BOA’s robust web presence.
