The Good, The Bad & The Unlucky – Forthcoming Event

On the afternoon of October 5th I’ll be giving a talk at Wokingham Library about some of the colourful characters who appear in my most recent book, Famous Brand Names & Their Origins.

Behind every well known household brand, there’s a fascinating story about its creator waiting to be discovered.

While some used their wealth to become admirable philanthropists, others spent it, more or less, on wine, women and song!

And then there were those who failed to find financial success or personal happiness despite their inventions making millions for others.

These, then, are the people whose stories will be covered in my talk.

Tickets for the talk cost £3, all of which goes to the Library. To sign up, call Wokingham Library on 0118 9781368.
