Creativity and Solitude

  • This event has passed.

Terry Waite CBE

Thursday 11th October 15:00 - 16:00 | Northwood House

During his visit to the Festival Terry Waite will make specific reference to two of his latest books:  the first Out of the Silence is a collection of poems and narrative. Many of the poems had their genesis during his years of captivity in Beirut.  Solitude, the second book, is an account of solitary places and solitary people that he has visited across the years.  It begins in the remote outback of Australia and continues to explore the solitude of experiences of such diverse figures as Svetlana Stalin, Myra Hindley, George Blake and many others.  It has been described as a fascinating read.
