Author’s Biography:
Matt Haig is a best-selling author who has written fiction for both children and adults and non-fiction for adults. His adult work focuses on the human condition in general and his own experience of dealing with mental health issues. Far from being bleak or depressing, his books are both witty and life-affirming and he is a strong advocate of the power of reading which makes him a perfect author for our Big City read. Matt’s most recent novel is the best-selling How to Stop Time and his new non-fiction work, Notes from a Nervous Planet, was published in July.

Matt lives in Brighton with his partner writer Andrea Semple and their children Lucas and Pearl.

Rob O’Connor is a board member for the York Literature Festival and was the festival director from 2016 - 2018. He also teaches literature and creative writing at York St John University and the Centre for Lifelong Learning at the University of York. His areas of research interest focuses on genre theories, science fiction and fantasy, contemporary fiction, and creative writing
