The October selection is The Midnight Library by Matt Haig. This is the beautifully told story of Nora Seed, who has the opportunity to go back and change her life for a new one, exploring what makes a life worth living.
Nora studies philosophy and one of her favourite authors is Thoreau. Bigfoot Trading Co in Kamloops, BC designed this gorgeous Enamel Mug for us using one of the quotes found in the book.
Despite being British, Nora is an avid coffee drinker. As a girl she contemplates becoming a glaciologist. These two interests combine in the freshly roasted Glacier Blend Coffee from Rocky Mountain Roasters in Jasper, AB.
Taking care of your mental health is a prominent theme of the book, so you’ll find Mini Empowerment Kits by Moment to Shine in Victoria Harbour, ON to remind you to take care of yourself.
Nora wishes that she had made different decisions which is embodied in the Midnight Library. To represent this, Imperfectly Worthy in London, ON has made these adorable book themed Wish Bracelets.
You’ll also find a lovely themed bookmark and Matt Haig was kind enough to sign bookplates for us!
