Waterstones Book Events for March!


This is a book signings post with a bit of a difference. We know it’s extremely late but due to some alterations to the Waterstones website, we’ve been extremely limited on what signings we can bring you but now we can bring you the few signings we think you would like to see between now and the end of March!

Matt-haig-4_400_300Matt Haig

Novelist and journalist Matt Haig discusses his life-affirming memoir, Reasons to Stay Alive, on Monday 23rd March in York at 7pm.

What Does It mean To Feel Truly Alive? 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 cliches 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.”

In a riveting daily diary, written with his trademark wit and charm, Salmond takes us into the heart of the YES campaign, revealing what was said and done behind the scenes as the referendum reached its dramatic climax. He explains how the YES campaign energised the entire Scottish nation and rewrote the rulebook for grassroots political campaigning, not just in the UK but throughout the world.

We hope to be able to bring you much more signing information for April!
