Andrew Carnegie Talk with Playwright Dave Dewar at Troon Library

Where: Troon Library, South Beach, Troon KA10 6EF
When: Wednesday 03 April 2019 at 7pm

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.

Booking required. This is a free event but any donations to the food bank (in our library foyer) on the night would be greatly appreciated.
