BAD Sydney Crime Writers Festival 2019 Event


A welcome addition to this year’s BAD Sydney Crime Writers Festival is the ‘Crime at the Library’ series where guests will have the opportunity to hear some of Australia’s award-winning true crime and crime fiction authors.

BAD Sydney, in partnership with Woollahra Library in Double Bay, will feature author, investigative journalist and 60 Minutes TV producer, Grace Tobin in conversation with Walkley Award winning investigative ABC journalist, Elise Worthington.
Grace’s book ‘Deal with the Devil’ (Penguin Random House) is the extraordinary and painful tale of the Leveson’s ordeal to grant immunity from prosecution to Michael Atkins, the man they believed was responsible for their son Matt’s death, to enable his body to be located.

 “Throughout the four-year police reinvestigation of Matt’s case, I worked closely with the Leveson’s as new revelations unfolded,” Ms Tobin said.

 “In their public quest to achieve justice for their son, what remained unwavering was their love, strength and determination. They are a force to be reckoned with and I am honoured to be sharing their story.”

Both Grace and Elise will be guests of BAD Sydney Crime Writers Festival 2019 on 6, 7 & 8 September at the State Library of NSW, Macquarie St, Sydney.

Bad Sydney is an annual event held toexplore what crime can tell us about humanity, both contemporary and historical. Past speakers have included writers, reporters and film-makers, and professionals from the justice system such as detectives, judges and psychologists.
