August 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
In this month’s Multidimensional Book & Movie Exploration with Rebecca Whitecotton, we’re reading The Midnight Library by Matt Haig. This engaging and insightful book was chosen by Goodreads readers as the #1 book of 2020.
Official book description:
Between life and death there is a library, and within that library, the shelves go on forever. Every book provides a chance to try another life you could have lived. To see 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?
A dazzling novel about all the choices that go into a life well lived, from the internationally bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive and How To Stop Time.
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 new 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.Register Now

A note from Rebecca:
I absolutely love this book and could relate it to my own life on so many levels. Everyone questions decisions they have made and wondered what could have happened, and if the other choice would have led to a better life. Matt Haig’s book takes a raw look at regret and what it would be like to step into another version of ourselves. It’s such a beautiful, encouraging message.
I also love The Midnight Library because it has so many parallel ideas to my own book, Pull Your Self Together. But that’s a story for another day. I hope you’ll join me to talk about The Midnight Library!
