About the Event
Matt Haig joins the Guardian Live Book Club to introduce his latest novel, The Midnight Library.
Nora Seed finds herself in The Midnight Library, a place between life and death. Up until now, her life has been full of misery and regret. But the books in the library enable Nora to live as if she had done things differently. She has the chance to work out her perfect life, but things aren’t what they first seem and soon her choices place her in great danger. This poignant novel about regret, hope and forgiveness takes a hard look at the choices that go into a life well lived.
Haig is an author for children and adults. His novels include The Dead Father’s Club and How To Stop Time. His hugely successful memoir, Reasons To Stay Alive, is a moving and candid account of his struggle with depression and anxiety.
