Message from the Terry Waite CBE, Honorary Chairman
As Honorary Chairman of the Guernsey Literary Festival it is once again my pleasure to welcome you to this lovely island. Although I don't live on Guernsey I look forward to returning each year and meeting old friends and making new ones.
We owe a special word of thanks to all who help make this Festival possible each year and we are especially grateful to those who sponsor us. It is expensive to stage such a festival as many of the speakers and others have to travel from across the water and that is not cheap. So, thank you all.
I would like to meet as many of you as possible during the Festival so if you see me in the streets of Guernsey be sure to say 'hello'. Have a great week.
Terry Waite CBE
