Good day, neighbors! It's me again, Gabriela Couvillion, your host of the San Antonio Daily. Humid with some sun returning. High: 89 Low: 70. When Keri Miki-Lani Schroeder was in Nevada, she would see coyotes everywhere. “I remember seeing them at the drive-in movie theater eating spilled popcorn and hotdogs off the ground,' she says. In 2014, while exploring a Nevada ghost town, she saw "a coyote skeleton decaying in a rusty barrel."

Her book art involves "meticulously handmade boxes, found objects, unusual printing techniques and wry nods to games and magic tricks" and has been featured in exhibitions all around the U.S. To learn more about the artist and see some of her contributions to the world of book art, visit: (San Antonio Current)
