Alberto de Lacerda
DISQUIET is dedicated to the memory of Portuguese poet Alberto de Lacerda and each year includes a special tribute to him. We consider two of his most deeply held values to be important aspirations for the character of DISQUIET.
- Read Scott Laughlin’s piece on Alberto de Lacerda in Post Road.
