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.

    Yep, I was there last night as well. Saw a lot of old friends, and bought a bagful of books. It really was a great event. Can’t wait until next time.

    Yeah, it was a great event. Especially meeting all the people and getting the books. I look foward to it happening more often.

    are there any other pictures of it around?

    I was happy to be a part of the event. What a range of books! I managed to stay on a budget but did spend a bit of money on the treasures there…and since it obviously was a success, I hope that there are more in future. Tina Price and the Van Eaton Gallery did a great job organizing everything.
