Matt Haig: The Midnight Library

Book of the Month Live Q&A

Year Round Events, 

We are thrilled to launch the new novel from the superstar author of How to Stop Time and Reasons to Stay Alive. Matt will be talking to Peter Florence, and everyone is welcome for the Q&A.

Between life and death there is a library…

When Nora Seed finds herself in the Midnight Library, she has a chance to make things right. Up until now, her life has been full of misery and regret. She feels she has let everyone down, including herself. But things are about to change.

The books in the Midnight Library enable Nora to live as if she had done things differently. With the help of an old friend, she can now undo every one of her regrets as she tries to work out her perfect life. But things aren’t always what she imagined they’d be, and soon her choices place the library and herself in extreme danger.

Before time runs out, she must answer the ultimate question: what is the best way to live?

We have 50 first edition copies with signed bookplates available to Hay Festival customers from today, 13 August. Please buy your copy here, or from your local bookshop.
