We learned of Larry Van Ness's story after the submission deadline was over for Undeniably Indiana (submissions were due September 1, 2015). So unfortunately he will not be included in the book. However, we are publishing another crowdsourced Indiana book called One Day in May. This will be a photo book. We're looking for pictures of what people are doing in Indiana on May 20, 2016. I hope you'll consider taking a picture of Larry and submitting it to us. You can find more info about our One Day in May photo contest here: http://bit.ly/OneDayinMay
