An Evening With Matt Haig

Thursday 5th July 18:30 - 20:30 at Manchester Central Library, St. Peter's Square, Manchester, M2 5PD

From the no. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive and How to Stop Time, a personal and vital look at how to feel happy, human and whole in the 21st century.


The world is messing with our minds.

How can we stay sane on a planet that makes us mad?

How do we stay human in a technological world?

How do we feel happy when we are encouraged to be anxious?

After experiencing years of anxiety and panic attacks, these questions became urgent matters of life and death for Matt Haig. And he began to look for the link between what he felt and the world around him.

Rates of stress and anxiety are rising. A fast, nervous planet is creating fast and nervous lives. We are more connected and yet feel more alone. And we are encouraged to worry about everything from world politics to our body mass index.

Notes on a Nervous Planet
is a personal look at how to feel happy, human and whole in the 21st century.

Matt Haig is the number one bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive and six highly acclaimed novels for adults, including How to Stop Time, The Humans and The Radleys. As a writer for children and young adults he has won the Blue Peter Book Award, the Smarties Book Prize and been shortlisted three times for the Carnegie Medal. His work has been translated into over forty languages.
