Description

Sydney Noir: The Golden Years

Join local author Michael Duffy as he discusses Sydney Noir: The Golden Years, an exploration of a dark yet fascinating chapter of Sydney’s history when underworld activity flourished the 1960s and 70s.

Co-authored by Nick Hordern, the book sheds light on an era of great prosperity and rampant crime in our city - illegal gambling, police corruption and the rise of influential and notorious figures such as Abe Saffron and George Freeman. It was a period when thousands of American soldiers on R & R leave from Vietnam turned Kings Cross, with its strip shows and nightclubs, into one big party.

Michael Duffy is a former publisher and has worked in print and radio journalism. He is the author of more than seven books covering history, politics, crime fiction and true crime investigation.

Books will be available for purchase on the night.

This event is free. Enquiries: 9093 6400
