LSU Shreveport Animation and Visual Effects program will host an event featuring author, illustrator and filmmaker William Joyce. The event will be on April 21, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. in the University Center Theatre, says John Miralles.

Joyce‘s work can be seen in Disney/Pixar's “Toy Story,” “A Bug's Life,” “Meet the Robinsons,” “Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium” and the future 2012 film, “The Guardians,” which is based on an upcoming series of picture books.
