Join us on Wednesday, June 30 at 1:30 pm as we discuss “The Midnight Library” by Matt Haig.
Nora Seed is a thirty-five-year-old woman who lives in chaos, despair, and regret. Her life is not worth living anymore. She lives alone, not speaking to anybody because she doesn’t get along with her father, brother, and only friend, Izzy. She loses her job and her cat. Also, she’s been depressed for 2 years since her mother’s death. All these things made her want to end her life.
Nora loses her will to live. She feels she disappointed everyone, so that’s why no one needs her. Thus, she decides to commit suicide. Close to death, she finds herself transported to a big, odd library, where she meets her old school librarian, Mrs. Elm. In the Midnight Library, Mrs. Elm tells her that every book she sees is a version of her life. If she chooses a book, she has a chance to make things right. Those books are portals to all the lives Nora could be living. Every book, but one enables her to live as if she had done things differently. Fortunately, Nora now has a chance to undo her regrets, to be whoever she wants to be.
But will Nora find the best version of her life and be happy?
