LOS ANGELES, July 5 (UPI) -- Walt Disney Co. CEO Michael Eisner's tribute to Keewaydin, the Vermont camp where he spent his teenage summers, is staying off the best-seller lists.
"It's definitely a hit in Vermont," Time Warner Book Group CEO Laurence Kirshbaum told the Los Angeles Times. "Unfortunately, Vermont is not one of the major population centers of the United States."
"Camp" is both Eisner's story as a camper and the story of two underprivileged boys from Southern California sent to Keewaydin by his foundation. In true Hollywood fashion, Aaron Cohen, a TV writer and producer who helped write the book, followed the boys to Keewaydin.
Eisner plans to donate any profits from the book to the Eisner Foundation, which, at the moment, pays the camp fees for 17 Southern Californian kids, among many other charitable activities.
But "Camp" is not selling nearly as well as "Disney Wars," James B. Stewart's account of Eisner's battles with Michael Ovitz, Roy Disney and others.
