Description

An Evening with Terry Waite

We are very pleased to welcome back Terry Waite.

Terry Waite MBE, CBE is a British Quaker, Anglican, humanitarian and author. In the 1980s, he worked as the Archbishop of Canterbury’s special envoy, travelling to the Middle East and negotiating the release of many hostages in Iran, Libya and Lebanon. His first book, Taken on Trust, was written in his head when he was denied pen or paper during his own captivity.

Terry Waite was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Anglia Ruskin University, and still works for a range of humanitarian causes, including prisoners, the homeless, hostages and their families, and overseas development. He will be sharing his experiences in this interview-style evening, led by Jamie Hacker Hughes.

The evening will be followed by a book signing. Books will be on sale.

Jamie Hacker Hughes is a Visiting Professor of Military Psychology in the Veterans and Families Institute at Anglia Ruskin University. He is a former head of healthcare psychology at the MoD and now works as a PTSD and trauma specialist and supervisor with a clinical practice in adult psychology.
