Matt Haig
Notes on a Nervous Planet
Thu 19 July 2018, 18:30-19:30

£8 / £6 / £4.50

The world is messing with our minds. Rates of stress and anxiety are rising. A fast, nervous planet is creating fast and nervous lives. We are more connected, yet feel more alone. And we are encouraged to worry about everything from world politics to our body mass index.

How do we stay human in a technological world? How do we feel happy when we are encouraged to be anxious? After experiencing years of anxiety and panic attacks, these questions become urgent matters of life and death for Matt Haig, number one bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive. He began to look for the link between what he felt and the world around him. He now offers a personal and vital look at how we can rehumanise ourselves in this age of anxiety and feel happy, human and whole in the twenty-first century.
