FictionBookclub “The Midnight Library” by Matt Haig & U Dog too

December 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:20 pm EST

All doglovers & dogs are invited to join my coed bookclub on Tuesday, December 6, to discuss critically acclaimed (Winner of the Goodreads Choice Award for Fiction, A Good Morning America Book Club Pick, Independent (London) Ten Best Books of the Year), clever, uplifting, emotional, captivating, thought provoking, poignant novel,”Midnight Library” by Matt Haig.

The #1 New York Times bestselling WORLDWIDE phenomenon. The dazzling reader-favorite about the choices that go into a life well lived, from the acclaimed author of How To Stop Time and The Comfort Book. Somewhere out beyond the edge of the universe there is a library that contains an infinite number of books, each one the story of another reality. One tells the story of your life as it is, along with another book for the other life you could have lived if you had made a different choice at any point in your life. While we all wonder how our lives might have been, what if you had the chance to go to the library and see for yourself? Would any of these other lives truly be better? In The Midnight Library, Matt Haig’s enchanting blockbuster novel, Nora Seed finds herself faced with this decision. Faced with the possibility of changing her life for a new one, following a different career, undoing old breakups, realizing her dreams of becoming a glaciologist; she must search within herself as she travels through the Midnight Library to decide what is truly fulfilling in life, and what makes it worth living in the first place.

We’ll enjoy a stimulating & fun discussion with wonderful booklover and doglover company, while enjoying a virtual happy.I can’t wait til I see you if I have the privilege on December 6 & our prior bookclubs if we’re fortunate.

Reviews

“A feel-good book guaranteed to lift your spirits.”The Washington Post

“Absorbing… exactly what’s wanted in these troubling times” New York Times

“An inspirational popular writer on mental health of our age and, in his latest novel, he has taken a clever, engaging concept and created a heart-warming story that offers wisdom in the same deceptively simple way as Mitch Albom’s best tales.” *Independent (UK)*

“Haig’s latest (after the nonfiction collection *Notes on a Nervous Planet*, 2019) is a stunning contemporary story that explores the choices that make up a life, and the regrets that can stifle it. A compelling novel that will resonate with readers.”*Booklist* (starred review)

“Charming…[Matt Haig] will reward readers who take this book off the shelf.” *Publisher’s Weekly*
