Supercrash: A Comica Conversation with Darryl Cunningham and Danny Dorling

Monday 3rd November 2014 6:30pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Join us for this special Comica Festival event with leading graphic journalist Darryl Cunningham (left)as he discusses his latest work Supercrash: How To Hijack The Global Economy (Myriad Editions) - a study of the origins of the 2008 financial crash and the philosophy that caused it to happen.

Cunningham draws a revealing portrait of the American New Right and the influential libertarian Ayn Rand, mentor to the young Alan Greenspan (former Chair of the Federal Reserve). Through his concise, intelligent cartooning, Cunningham discusses how scapegoating the poor contributed to the rise of the Tea Party in America and UKIP in Britain, and examines the neurological basis of political thinking and the challenges we face in instigating change.

Acclaimed for his previous graphic works Psychiatric Tales and Science Tales, Cunningham is in conversation with Danny Dorling (right), Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography and author of Inequality And The 1% (Verso Books). Dorling hails Supercrash as 'Remarkable, informed, accurate and incisive... At last there is a single, readable book that explains to the generation that came of age in 2008 what happened, why it happened and why it will happen again unless we change the way we think.'

The speakers will be available for signing after the event.

Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road
