The Book Drunkard Literary Festival

Celebrate the beginning of our 2024 festival season with bestselling author, Matt Haig, visiting from the UK.  Join us on September 9 at the Uxbridge Music Hall as Matt takes us on an adventure with his new novel: The Life Impossible. Tickets include a copy of the book.  

“What looks like magic is simply a part of life we don’t understand yet . . . ”  

When retired math teacher Grace Winters inherits a run-down house on the Mediterranean island of Ibiza from a long-lost friend, curiosity gets the better of her. Grace arrives in Ibiza with a one-way ticket, no guidebook and no plan.  

Among the rugged hills and golden beaches of the island, Grace searches for answers about her friend’s life and how it ended. What she uncovers is stranger than she could have possibly dreamed. But to dive into this impossible truth, Grace must first come to terms with her past.  

Filled with wonder and wild adventure, this is a story of hope and the life-changing power of a new beginning.
