Join us for conversation and more about The Midnight Library, a dazzling novel about all the choices that go into a life well lived, written by the internationally bestselling author, Matt Haig.
"An uplifting, poignant novel about regret, hope and second chances" - author David Nicholls
The Midnight Library tells the story of a library between life and death where the shelves go on forever. Every book offers a chance to try another life you could have lived and shows how things would be if you had made other choices. Would you have done anything different if you had the chance to undo your regrets?
Participants request copies of the book through the library. Multiple copies are available. Registration is required.
