Tammy and I are pleased to be returning to Villisca, Iowa to present a film and discussion program during their annual Heritage Days weekend on June 30, 2007 at 3 pm at the Rialto Theater. In the first half of the program we will preview a portion of our new historical documentary "Lost Nation: The Ioway." Selected clips of the work-in-progress will be followed by a discussion regarding local ties to the story of the Ioway Indians.
In the second half of the program we will be joined by historian Dr. Edgar Epperly for a discussion of new findings, photographs, and untold stories in the 1912 Villisca axe murder case. The 95-year-old unsolved crime was the subject of our documentary "Villisca: Living with a Mystery". The film was based largely on Epperly's research.
The program is sponsored by the Villisca Historical Society, Inc. Tickets prices are to-be-announced and proceeds will benefit the Villisca Historical Society. We hope you will join us in Villisca for this program and other events and activities planned for the weekend. For more information visit Villisca.com.
