The Embrace Annual Lecture: Now Online!

We are delighted to announce that our postponed Embrace Annual Lecture will be available to watch online in January and February.

We will provide details of how to join the online lecture closer to the time.

Our speaker this year is the writer and broadcaster John McCarthy. Following on from his 2012 acclaimed book You Can’t Hide the Sun – A journey through Israel and Palestine.

The event will be broadcast at the following times:

  • Afternoon 30th January
  • Afternoon 1st February
  • Morning 3rd of February
  • Evening 4th of February

John will join in conversation with Elizabeth Oldfield, director of the think tank Theos, to talk about what hope remains for the Palestinian people in the light of recent seismic political changes in the region during the Trump presidency.

They will also discuss the implications of the November Presidential elections. We’re particularly keen to encourage book groups to read You Can’t Hide the Sun and then join us on one of the above dates.

If you are a member of a book club, do pass these details on to your fellow members and encourage them to sign up for the lecture.
