Bonehouse at the Bar

  • The Wild Detectives 314 West Eighth Street Dallas, TX, 75208 United States (map)

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 March 19 at 3 PM for a free poetry reading, featuring: 

Nadia Wolnisty
Adam Cooper
Gabe Mamola
Reverie Powell

At this month's performance, a portion of all book sales will be donated to the educational and literary nonprofit which Bonehouse poet Amos J. Hunt founded last year to promote a discerning local readership for poetry, Imagine Dallas Literary Arts, Inc.

Our 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.We take our name from a line in Gerard Manley Hopkins’ "The Caged Skylark" as a reflection of our common interest in the life of the body, a life awkwardly and beautifully strung between spirit and dirt.
