Panel Discussion on Life of Walt Disney at USC

On November 15, Lear Center senior fellow Neal Gabler will lead a panel discussion on the life and legacy of Walt Disney. Newsweek calls Gabler’s new biography, Walt Disney: The Triumph of American Imagination, "the definitive Disney bio." The discussion will include Time movie critic Richard Schickel, author of The Disney Version; and Disney legends Alice Davis and Harrison "Buzz" Price. A reception with refreshments and a book signing will follow.

The Lear Center also has a link to an interview Neal Gabler did with Fresh Air to whet your appetite.

I’m about 100 pages into Gabler’s very thick book on Walt Disney. It’s good so far, although very reminiscent of Steven Watt’s "The Magic Kingdom: Walt Disney and the American Way of Life". In any event anytime you get Alice Davis and Harrison "Buzz" Price in a room, you’ll get good show.
