Matt Haig is a bestselling author who has written fiction for both children and adults and non-fiction for adults. His adult work focuses on the human condition in general and his own experience of dealing with mental health issues. Far from being bleak or depressing, his books are both witty and life-affirming and he is a strong advocate of the power of reading which makes him a perfect author for our Big City read.
Matt's most recent novel is the bestselling How to Stop Time and his new non-fiction work, Notes from a Nervous Planet, was published in July.
Waterstones will be selling Matt's books at this event and he will also be signing copies.
