David Horvitz / Book Giveaway

If you are familiar with the work of David Horvitz then you know what to expect from his new book “Everything That Can Happen In A Day”. It is like a more meditative version of Miranda July’s “Learning to Love You More” project. He kindly sent over a copy for me, and it came with an extra copy so I could give it away!

I am going to limit this giveaway to Vancouverites or people who are willing to come and get the book from my house! If you would like to have my extra copy of the book head over to David’s Tumblr and find a post that resonates with you and then post the link to it in the comments.

I will pick a winner on Monday!
