Last night’s Book Look at the Van Eaton Gallery in Sherman Oaks. Top photo is Mike Van Eaton himself, showing off a new acquistion: a background painting from Pluto Junior (1942). Bottom photo is of J.B. Kaufman and Russell Merritt, authors of Walt Disney’s Silly Symphonies (a must-have new book).
Over 200 people attended, with a large crowd continuously in store from 6pm until after 10pm. Mike is hoping to turn this into an annual or bi-annual event. Authors in attendance included Nancy Beiman, Tom Sito, Steve Gordon, Stephen Silver, Dean Yeagle, Joe Adamson and Martha Sigall. A great time was had by all. Thanks to all the Brew readers who stopped by to say hello.
