I'm concerned, though. I still haven't received my DVD of the event. Has anyone else?
As of Wednesday.

Regarding the book, I had a great chat with Gene Sands and Lawrence Boag Sunday. Although they were really hoping to have the book ready by the show, they've been having some legal hang ups with copyrights. For every picture they want to include in the book, they have to have permission of course, from either Disney, or other actors pictured with Wally. This includes those who have passed away who still have estates and lawyers to tangle with. It's a tedious process, and there have been a few estates either not willing to give permission, or wanting to charge a crazy amount of money just to allow the picture to be published in the book. As of Sunday they still had about 17 pictures left to get clearance. They told me they expect the book to be ready this fall, possibly October.
Another issue they had was Bruce Gordon's death. He had worked alongside Gene, Lawrence and Wally to help with the format until he died. It took quite a bit of time to replace him, which is what caused more delay. (I think they've been working on this book for a couple of years now).
So that's all the information I have for you now. If I learn anything new I'll be sure and post it here, or send you a PM.
