UCM Book Club: Nowhere Girl – A Memoir of a Fugitive Childhood by Cheryl Diamond

The next meeting of the book club will be in-person at UCM on Tuesday, November 22 at 12:30 PM with the book discussion to begin at 1 PM.

The featured book we will discuss is Nowhere Girl: A Memoir of a Fugitive Childhood by Cheryl Diamond, the incredible true story of a family built on lies. Cheryl Diamond’s memoir begins when she is four and her family is in Kashmir, India, hurtling down the Himalayas in their battered station wagon headed for the Golden Temple, the holiest site in the Sikh religion. By the time she turns nine, Cheryl has had at least six assumed identities. She has lived on five continents, fleeing the specter of Interpol and law enforcement. Despite the strange circumstances, Diamond’s life as a young child is mostly joyful and exciting, her family of five a tiny, happy circle unto themselves. Slowly, Diamond begins to realize that her life itself might be a big con. Surviving would require her to escape, and we root for this determined woman as she unlearns all the rules of her family. Nowhere Girl is an impossible-to-believe true story of self-discovery and triumph.

All are welcome to attend.
