"I rip and I rhyme, I rhyme and I rip, this is the way that Dylan spits." That's an example of a bad rhyme. If you want to hear some good rhymes, then check out BOA Editions' 16th Annual Dine & Rhyme event, taking place this Sunday, September 29.
The event will feature readings by award-winning poet Li-Young Lee, who will be accompanied by David Whetstone on the sitar (the instrument Ravi Shankar made famous). You can also bring copies of Lee's books to get signed. The readings take place at the Gallery Auditorium in the Memorial Art Gallery, 500 University Ave.
After the readings, head over to Good Luck Restaurant (50 Anderson Ave) for a reception, dinner, and silent auction. Reading begins at 3 p.m., and reception begins at 5 p.m. Tickets range from $25 for the reading, and $125 for the reading and reception. Go to boaeditions.org for more information.
