Event Details

This presentation by author Jeff Ryan features behind-the-scenes pictures, fascinating trivia about who Walt Disney was, who the guy with the weird name of Ub Iwerks was, and of course loads of animation. (Can’t put animation in a book!) In 1928, two very different best friends invented Mickey Mouse and the success tore them apart. Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks’s friendship is a story of betrayal, love, war, money, power, tragedy, intrigue, humor, despair, and hope. You’ll love them both—when you don’t want to drop anvils on their heads. Discover the men behind the mouse, and the mystery behind the magic.
