Sunday 25 June 2017, 3pm: Did you miss the last Amnesty International Coffee Time event? Well, not to worry! They’re back again at the end of this month when Dr. Jan Black’s husband, Dr. Martin Needler, will be at Old Capitol Books, signing copies of his latest book A Rich & Valued Life.
About Dr. Martin Needler
Marty Needler grew up in Manchester, England, surviving the German bombardment in World War II. He moved to the United States as a teen, and after attending high school in Denver went to Harvard. Upon graduation, he joined the Army and was posted to the front of the Cold War. An exceedingly bright fellow, he became a scholar, a teacher, a renowned lecturer, a college administrator, and as a leading authority on Latin America, Marty was an advisor to government. He associated with people like John Kenneth Galbraith, McGeorge Bundy, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Henry Kissinger, and other major players of the last fifty years. He also wrote many books, traveled to more than 150 countries, married and raised children, made music and trod the boards, and influenced thousands of lives. Most importantly, he might say, he found his partner in mind and heart, the extraordinary Jan Knippers Black.
