Can we share punchlines about what has been haunting the world for the last 2 years ? Pairing comedy with death to puncture taboos about our final destination, this event features artists who have confronted loss & are ready bare their souls whilst poking holes into adult anxieties. Their challenge, if they take it, is to crack jokes about our greatest taboo, with tenderness & respect.

About the Series: 

How do human beings behave in times of uncertainty? What goes on behind the scenes of writing ghost stories? How can we approach mortality and living? Can we joke about death?

Night at the Library 2021 will bring to the fore of these conversations with over 12 programmes, through online talks and panels, illustrated and original ghost stories, a self-directed trail and a podcast.

Bringing writers who explore supernatural in literature and as cultural phenomenon, to professionals who encounter mortality in the fields of funeral planning and end of life care, Night at the Library will confront the uncertainties of reality and horrors that keep us awake at night.
