Event description

Description

Villains have dominated Australia’s print media since the launch of The Sydney Gazette and NSW Advertiser in 1803. The way we tell true crime tales has evolved but much of the subject matter remains unchanged. Murderers abound. From brief articles to full-length books, true crime is, today, a dominant feature of the publishing landscape. Join Rachel Franks as she highlights some of our better-known (and a few forgotten) crooks and explores the place of these men and women in our history and in our popular culture.

Hosted by Wollongong City Libraries.

Proudly presented as part of the History Council of NSW’s Speaker Connect program for History Week 2017, supported by Create NSW.
