DISNEY BOOK CLUB: STEVE HULETT AND MOUSE IN TRANSITION
SEPTEMBER 13TH, 2015, 6:00 PM
We’re so excited to announce that Steve Hulett from the Animation Guild will be visiting the store to share his memories of working at Disney in the 1970s and 80s. In his book Mouse in Transition Hulett takes readers into the sometimes dark Disney heart of power, politics, and the cult of personality as he recalls:
– Helping Ken Anderson on the ill-fated feature Catfish Bend, and how Anderson in return tried to get him fired
– Enduring intense, marathon story meetings with Woolie Reithermann, which Hulett recounts in colorful, unexpurgated detail
– Working on such Disney features as The Fox and the Hound, The Great Mouse Detective, and The Black Cauldron
– Meeting Eisner and Katzenberg for the first time, and the seismic shock their edicts sent through the Disney Studio
– Learning the ropes through candid conversations with such Disney luminaries as Ward Kimball, Claude Coats, and Eric Larson
Join us in welcoming Steve to Los Gatos!
We’ll also be introducing new Disney books that have come out in the last few months. If you’ve read a Disney book since our last meeting that you’d like to recommend, bring it along and share it with us!
