Event Details

Description

. A college dropout who fell in love with shoes while working in a mom and pop shoe, Madden has taken his eponymous company from the fledgling startup he founded thirty years ago with a mere $1,100 to a multi-billion-dollar brand. Through his unflinching account of mistakes including the financial shortcuts that landed him in prison, readers will experience his wild ride through rise, fall and comeback. But they will also walk away uplifted by a man who has owned up to his mistakes and is determined to give back by using his hard-won platform to create positive change.
