While at Market Days, they will showcase and sell “More Snow” and “More Snow for Kids,” a series of books that recount the magical and miraculous Christmas 2004 Texas snowfall. The memorable meteorological event saw up to 12 inches of snowfall for 500 miles from Houston and Galveston down south to Brownsville and South Padre Island.
“More Snow” is a coffee table book that brings together thousands of photographs by both amateur and professionals showcasing the once-in-a-lifetime snowfall. With more than 600 images, the collection features winter images, including many of Victoria and Goliad.
The children’s read-along “More Snow for Kids” was written by Clark Childers, a Los Angeles-based screenwriter visiting home during the storm. Clark collaborated with clay artist and illustrator William Wilhelmi. The team combined clay artwork illustration on clay tablets with photographs and rhythmic verse.
Since 2004, more than 75,000 snow books have been sold – including the original “Snow,” “More Snow,” and “More Snow for Kids.” The last two books are available at www.texassnowbooks.com.
