Writer set to speak

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

Au­thor Kylie Ladd will speak about her re­cently pub­lished novel The Way Back at Nagam­bie Li­brary on Oc­to­ber 17.

Ms Ladd is a nov­el­ist, psy­chol­o­gist and free­lance writer and her nov­els have been pub­lished in Aus­tralia, New Zealand, the US, the UK and Europe.

In The Way Back, Char­lie John­son is 13 and in her first year of high school. She loves her fam­ily, net­ball and Liam, the cute guy who sits next to her in science — but most of all she loves horses and horserid­ing.

Char­lie’s par­ents have leased her a horse, Tic Tac, from the lo­cal pony club, but one day they go out for a ride in the na­tional park and only Tic Tac re­turns.

When a life has been shat­tered, how do you put the pieces back to­gether?

The Way Back is a mov­ing, haunt­ing and all-too­real novel that takes you be­yond the head­lines and ex­plores a fam­ily’s worst night­mare with com­pas­sion and in­sight.

Ms Ladd will be speak­ing on Oc­to­ber 17 at 7 pm at Nagam­bie Li­brary, 352 High St, Nagam­bie. Book­ings are re­quired. To book, phone the li­brary on 1300 374 765 by Satur­day.

Au­thor chat: Kylie Ladd will speak at Nagam­bie Li­brary next week about her lat­est novel The Way Back.
