Australian author Christian White will speak about his remarkable debut novel, The Nowhere Child as part of Chatswood Library’s Talks@Willoughby program.

Inspired by Gillian Flynn’s frenetic suspense and Stephen King’s masterful world-building, The Nowhere Child is a combustible tale of trauma, cult, conspiracy and memory.

On a break between teaching photography classes in Melbourne, Kim Leamy is approached by a stranger investigating the disappearance of a little girl, Sammy Went, from her Kentucky home 28 years earlier. He believes Kim is that girl.

When Kim scratches the surface of her family history in Australia, questions arise that aren’t easily answered. To find the truth, she must travel into a dark past and as the mystery of Sammy’s disappearance unravels and secrets are revealed, this superb novel builds towards an electrifying climax.

Christian White is an author and screenwriter whose projects include feature film RelicThe Nowhere Child is his first book, and an early draft of this novel won the 2017 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript.

Lindfield Bookshop will have copies of the author’s book available for sale on the day.
