Yes, you can use the text-flow object on the tools toolbar, and the
apply border/background attributes to the flow.

Subject: Boxed text call-outs
Does anyone know of any other way than the use of a one-cell table to
create a border around a block of text, or a shaded backdrop to text?
The table approach works, but is a complete pain where text call-outs
flow over page boundaries.
