Hottest ticket in town? Bestselling author Matt Haig joins Caroline Lucas MP in conversation about surviving our nervous (and warming) planet.

MATT Haig, the Brighton-based author behind the best selling memoir Reasons to Stay Alive will join Green MP Caroline Lucas in conversation at exclusive event on July 5 in Brighton.

At the evening event, at St George’s Church, Kemptown, they will discuss how we can learn to cope in a world dominated by climate crisis, fake news and political breakdown.

In this intimate conversation, Caroline Lucas MP will talk to Matt Haig about his number one Sunday Times bestseller, Notes on a Nervous Planet, and the questions that are feeding our collective ‘eco-anxiety’.

How do we feel like we’re doing enough? How do we get our voices heard in this era of fake news? And how do we overcome feelings of powerlessness? Caroline and Matt will also explore how we can work together for a confident and caring country, where mental health is given the same space and attention as physical health.

Caroline Lucas said: “Whether it is concern about our environmental impact, fears for the world our children will inhabit or frustration with our leaders unwillingness to admit the scale of the problem, fear about the future  is increasingly affecting our wellbeing. We need a new approach – I’m thrilled to be exploring these issues with Matt, one of our best contemporary writers.”

Matt Haig said: “I can’t wait for this! An evening chatting to the best politician in the country about mental health and environmentalism and the way the two go together. Do come along.”

The event, held in partnership with City Books, is being held to help raise funds for the Brighton & Hove Green party.
