Virtual Book Club – “The Midnight Library”  

Join our Virtual Book Club this December as we read and discuss “The Midnight Library” by Matt Haig. 
  
In a time when things continue to feel very “distanced,” we hope this Virtual Book Club helps to broaden and deepen an appreciation of reading, and compel friends, families and neighbors to share their thoughts while reading.  

Here is how it works:  Borrow the book “The Midnight Library” by Matt Haig and discuss it along with us! The book is available in traditional format (pick up in the Library or through Curbside Service) and in ebook/eaudiobook on both Ohio Digital Library and Hoopla. You can put the book on hold now through MidPointe’s eCatalog.   
Jump into virtual discussions online via MidPointe’s social media (Facebook and Twitter) and blog (www.MidPointeLibraryBlog.org) by responding in the comments to the questions we post. We will be sharing several questions a week but encourage you to add questions of your own for others to react to and discuss.    

About the book: 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?  

About the author: Matt Haig was born in Sheffield, England in1975. He writes books for both adults and children, often blending the worlds of domestic reality and outright fantasy, with a quirky twist. The Guardian has described his writing as 'delightfully weird' and The New York Times has called him 'a novelist of great talent' whose writing is 'funny, riveting and heartbreaking'.  Haig is the bestselling author of several books including the Alex Award–winning The Radleys, Humans, and The Midnight Library. An alumnus of Hull University and Leeds, his work has been translated into twenty-nine languages. He lives in York with his wife, UK novelist Andrea Semple, and their two children
