Yearning for your creative spirit to experience the magic of words and letters? National Book Store has the perfect avenue for you. The local book store chain is hosting “Words and Letters”, a two-day calligraphy and poetry reading event.
Happening on January 27-28 at the Shangri-La Plaza, the affair aims to celebrate the power of words in different forms – may it be through books, poetry or calligraphy – and bring together art and literature enthusiasts to indulge in creativity.
Words and Letters is also an opportunity to meet and learn from talented artists, performers and bestselling authors through creative workshops, spoken word poetry performances, live poetry reading, and book launches and signing. Demonstrating their craft live include Mark Aquino on 3D lettering, Bianca Ruiz on Basic Watercolor on Celestial Bodies, and Ian De Jesus on Decorative Doodled Words. Spoken word poetry performer Juan Miguel Severo will also bring his dose of hugot. Ampalaya Monologues author Mark Ghosn will also deliver the pains of heartbreak and being single. Rod Marmol will also share his honest musings honest on love and loss via his anthology, (Wa)Lang Love: Love Stories na Walang Love kaya Stories na Lang.
Books that will be launched at the event – all contemplating about heartbreak and letting go – are Noringai’s 365 Days of Feels: Your Daily Dose of Hugot and Love Advice, Adober Studios’ Unspoken Rules, and Dawn Lanueza’s The Last Time I’ll Write About You.
The best part: admission is totally free. You can come with your closest beshie or with your whole squad worry-free with art and literature to keep you in good company.
