WEDNESDAY

It may sound like another typical Disney project—young child takes journey to bucolic land of enchantment—but don’t look for any showstopping musical numbers, cute warthogs, or talking candlesticks in Michael Eisner’s latest offering. Indeed, the tale of Camp—the soon–to–be–ex–Head Mouseketeer’s memoir of his childhood summer-camp days—unfolds not once upon a time but in the late ’40s. And far, far away is actually Vermont’s Camp Keewaydin. Eisner maintains that his sojourns into the Green Mountains taught him the lessons that helped him navigate the real world. Well, let’s hope memories of a childhood Eden have eased the pain of his recent career turmoil; many Disney shareholders surely would like to roast him over a campfire. Eisner reads at 6:30 p.m. in the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden’s Ring Auditorium, 7th Street and Independence Avenue SW. Free. For tickets, call (202) 357-3030. (Joe Dempsey)
