Darryl will be talking about his new book Billionaires as well as his other previous graphic novels Psychiatric Tales (Blank Slate, 2010), Science Tales (Myriad, 2012), Supercrash (Myriad, 2014) and Graphic Science (Myriad, 2017).
This will be the first opportunity to purchase Billionaires as it will not be on general release till 7th November. Darryl will be available to sign copies.
Billionaires looks at the super-rich in our society, who they are, how they acquired their wealth, what their lives are like, and how they have such disproportionate political and cultural influence on our own lives.
In his latest book, celebrated author Darryl Cunningham features graphic biographies of billionaires including media baron Rupert Murdoch, oil and gas tycoons Charles and David Koch, and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. Have these individuals enjoyed advantages that have aided their success, beyond their personal ability and attributes?
The talk will be introduced by Louise Crosby from LDC Leeds and followed by a Q&A.
