The Litfest Big Read: Matt Haig

Friday 12th March 7:30pm

‘An uplifting, poignant novel about regret, hope and second chances’ David Nicholls
‘A wonderful story’ Zoe Ball, BBC Radio 2

Nora’s life has been going from bad to worse. Then at the stroke of midnight on her last day on earth she finds herself transported to a library. There she is given the chance to undo her regrets and try out each of the other lives she might have lived. Which raises the ultimate question: with infinite choices, what is the best way to live?

The Midnight Library is a poignant story about regret, hope and second chances, and appreciating the one life you have. It is Matt’s first adult novel since How to Stop Time (2017).

The event, including a talk and reading by Matt Haig, and a conversation with Jake Hope, will be followed by a live on-line Q&A.

Matt Haig is the number one bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive and Notes on a Nervous Planet and six highly acclaimed novels for adults, including How to Stop Time, The Humans and The Radleys. Haig also writes award-winning books for children, including A Boy Called Christmas, which is being made into a feature film with an all-star cast. He has sold more than two million books in the UK and his work has been translated into over forty languages.

This event is part of the Litfest Big Read 2021.  It might not be possible to meet in person during the festival but we are encouraging everyone to come together to read one of the two most highly praised and enjoyable books published last year and win a free pass to three Litfest events in the next 12 months and your choice of three paperback books.
