Two-time Pulitzer Prize winning author John Carreyrou will talk about his book, “Bad Blood” on Wednesday, Feb. 12 at the Darien Community Association.
— an announcement from the Darien Community Association
Rigorously reported and fearlessly written, Bad Blood is the true and riveting story of Elizabeth Holmes and her Silicon Valley startup, Theranos.
Widely viewed as the next Steve Jobs and promising to revolutionize the medical industry with a breakthrough blood-testing device, Holmes and her company instead became the biggest corporate fraud since Enron.
John Carreyrou, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, was a reporter at The Wall Street Journal for 20 years, where he first exposed Theranos in a series of articles. A film version of Bad Blood is in progress, starring Jennifer Lawrence.
Many thanks to our friends at Barrett Bookstore for making this evening possible.
“Chilling … Reads like a thriller … Carreyrou tells (the Theranos story) virtually to perfection.”
