db011513

Drew Barrymore appears at The Grove to sign her new book on Wednesday January 15, 2014 at 7:00 PM!

Author Event
Actress Drew Barrymore has always loved hearts and “the way that continuous line accomplishes the most extraordinary thing — it conveys love.” We are honored to welcome Drew Barrymore when she signs Find it in Everything at Barnes & Noble.

About the book

Photographs by Drew Barrymore reveal hearts found in everyday situations.

“I have always loved hearts,” writes acclaimed actress Drew Barrymore in the foreword to this heartwarming gift book. “The way that continuous line accomplishes the most extraordinary thing–it conveys love.” In FIND IT IN EVERYTHING, Barrymore shares the photographs she has taken of heart-shaped objects and patterns she has come across over the past ten years. Some are obvious and others barely discernible. A discarded straw wrapper, a hole in a T-shirt, a scallion in a bowl of miso soup — seemingly everywhere she turns her lens a heart reveals itself. A very personal collection of images, many of them accompanied by brief captions that reflect on beauty in the everyday, FIND IT IN EVERYTHING is a delightful book from the beloved actress and director, who now adds photographer to her list of credentials.

Special Instructions
This is a wristbanded event. Wristbands for our Drew Barrymore event will be available after 9:00 am on January 15 with the purchase of Find it in Everything. Complete details to follow. Drew Barrymore will only be signing her new book.
