Having lost money on the 1977 calendar, I was not going to continue with this project. But then the Laguna Gloria Art Museum (now Austin Art Museum) contacted me. They wanted to publish it, which they did for two years. Copies from these years are hard to find. I have several museums that would like to have them. If you have a copy of the 1978 or 1979 Book of Days you would donate to a museum, please let me know.
On March 31, 2006, an
excellent article by Denise Gamino about the Book of Days murder appeared
on the front page of the Austin American-Statesman. That cold case, still
unsolved after all these years, still haunts those involved in publishing
the 1978 Book of Days calendar. The TV show, America's Most Wanted, featured this unsolved murder in 2007.
