Book Debate – Matt Haig’s ‘Reasons to Stay Alive ‘- FREE

What does it mean to feel truly alive? Come and join a free book discussion about Matt Haig’s ‘Reasons to Stay Alive’ hosted by Tim Mason and a panel of readers (NB Matt Haig will not be in attendance). Write Mind will be hosting free chats throughout the year discussion books about mental health. Aged 24, Matt Haig’s world caved in. He could see no way to go on living. This is the true story of how he came through crisis, triumphed over an illness that almost destroyed him and learned to live again. A moving, funny and joyous exploration of how to live better, love better and feel more alive, ‘Reasons to Stay Alive’ is more than a memoir. It is a book about making the most of your time on earth. “I wrote this book because the oldest clichés remain the truest. Time heals. The bottom of the valley never provides the clearest view. The tunnel does have light at the end of it, even if we haven’t been able to see it . . . Words, just sometimes, really can set you free.” Listen and discuss, participation not essential. Come along if you have or haven’t read the book.
