james b stewart.jpgMarch 18, 2005, Greencastle, Ind. - His latest book is near the top of the nation's bestseller lists, now DePauw University alumni in four cities will have the opportunity to meet DisneyWar author James B. Stewart Jr. A 1973 graduate of DePauw and chair of the University's Board of Trustees, Stewart will embark upon a national book tour for his latest project, which USA Today calls a "page turner," one of a number of rave reviews the work has received. Stewart told NBC's Today Show that DisneyWar "is a morality tale just like many of the Disney classics, and it remains to be seen whether good triumphs over evil. But, in fact, the happiest place on Earth is not very happy. It's a Machiavellian, ruthless climate where people who, at their greatest points of success, are often fired" (read more here).
