A Night in with Matt Haig
6:30PM, Wednesday, June 30, 2021
Venue: Online Streamed Production
THIS IS AN ONLINE LIVE STREAMED PRODUCTION FOR YOU TO WATCH AT HOME To mark the publication of 'The Comfort Book' Nothing is stronger than a small hope that doesn't give up. Join the number one bestselling author of 'Reasons to Stay Alive' and 'Notes On A Nervous Planet', MATT HAIG, to celebrate his new book that deftly mixes philosophy and memoir to create an indispensable manual for self-love and emotional resilience. In conversation for this exclusive event, Matt will offer reflections on hope, survival and the messy miracle of being alive. Sharing hopeful anecdotes, consolations and stories that give new ways of seeing ourselves and the world, Matt presents us with a collection of little islands of hope. Settle down on the sofa to enjoy Matt's mix of philosophy, memoir and self-reflection, as he builds on the wisdom of philosophers and survivors through the ages, from Marcus Aurelius to Nellie Bly, Emily Dickinson to James Baldwin. This is the event for when you need the wisdom of a friend, the comfort of a hug or a reminder that hope comes from unexpected places. A charming tonic, fitting for these troubled times.
