At aged 12 Andrew Carnegie with his penniless family emigrated from Dunfermline to America. By 35, he was a millionaire and, when he sold his company Carnegie Steel at aged 66, he became the richest man in the world. But not for long, as he proceeded to give it all away to good causes, including 2500 libraries.
Dundonald based playwright Dave Dewar will provide an insight into the fascinating life of one of the world's most successful and flamboyant entrepreneurs, who was not without his critics.
The talk will include some video excerpts from Dave's 2015 play about Carnegie and his American wife Louise.
