Dave Bossert ’83

Dave Bossert ’83 reports, “My latest book Kem Weber: Mid-Century Furniture Designs for The Disney Studios won the gold medal Bill Fisher Award at the 31st Annual IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards held in Chicago in April 2019. The book has since received gold medals in the nonfiction and history categories from the Nonfiction Authors Association, as well as a gold medal (and short-listed Grand Prize finalist) at The Eric Hoffer Book Awards. I recently graduated with honors from the UCLA Writers’ Program with a certificate in Fiction Writing. My next books are 3D Disneyland (The Old Mill Press, 2020) and Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas: Visual Companion (Disney Editions, 2021).”
