All staff, and especially those with a student facing or support role, are invited to an interactive workshop and information session on Wednesday 21st February in the Templeman Library with Tony Giles, blind global traveler and author, sharing his experiences of studying, living and travelling with sensory impairments.

Tony is totally blind and severely deaf in both ears, and gained a BA in American Studies from the University of Northampton in 2001 and a MA in Transatlantic Studies from the University of Birmingham in 2003.

He has written about some of his travel adventures in two published Ebooks: Seeing The World My Way, 2010 (republished 2017) and Seeing The Americas My Way, 2016.
