Award-winning poet Lawrence Ypil launches book of poems in Cebu

Multi-awarded poet and Ateneo professor Lawrence Lacambra Ypil launches his first book of poems, "The Highest Hiding Place", on Friday, October 23, 2009, at Fully Booked Ayala Center Cebu.

Collecting the poems that have won for Ypil the Carlos Palanca Awards and the Free Press Awards, among others, "The Highest Hiding Place" charts the author’s more than ten years’ exploration of the intersections of desire, displacement and voice.

Born and raised in Cebu, Ypil teaches literature and creative writing at the Ateneo de Manila University, while keeping a bi-monthly column in Sun Star Weekend called "Dog-ears in the Wrong Notebook".

The book launch on October 23 begins with a book signing and cocktails at 6:00 pm.

"The Highest Hiding Place" is published by the Ateneo de Manila Press and will be available at the launch for only P195. For details, visit
