The public is invited to enjoy some local draft beer and local draft poetry at their favorite Dallas bar/bookstore. We will be returning to The Wild Detectives on February 27 at 3 p.m. for a free poetry reading, featuring: Reverie Powell, Gabe Mamola, Nadia Wolnisty, Amos J. Hunt, Andrew Osborn and Rhett Forman.
This unique round-robin presentation, in which each poet chooses and introduces a poem by one of the others, shines a light on crafted, striking words, not personalities. Our goal is always for the audience to take hold of the poetry as something that belongs to them.
Bonehouse is a group of local poets who believe that good poetry happens within thoughtful community. Poetry is meant to be heard, and we have a particular commitment to inviting listeners to participate in the critical activity of poetry, the experience of a poem. At this month's performance, a portion of all book sales will be donated to Imagine Dallas Literary Arts, Inc.
