Lourd Ernest Hanopol de Veyra (Pinoy Socrates, Palanca-award-winning author, Dakila El Presidente, and reluctant heartthrob) is releasing his third book of poetry this weekend. He’s brilliant. It’s brilliant. Go buy it.

Don’t ask why it’s called Insectissimo!, I don’t know either. Knowing Lourd, the reason will probably be wry and insightful and irreverent. Maybe he’ll reveal the meaning at the launch. If not, there’ll be video versions of Lourd’s poetry made by Jun Sabayton (my personal omen of kawasakan – so yay!) and good times organized by Dakila.
|Insectissimo! — It’s really fun to say it out loud, complete with hand movements.|
