NSW Chapter online: Moralities and Deceptions – Justice and Justifications in Crime Writing

July 24, 2022 @ 5:00 pm 6:15 pm

The criminal defence lawyer and the psychologist are still sitting in that bar …

Sisters in Crime NSW invites you to take another peek behind the curtain of criminal life with Sydney authors Siobhan Mullany and Ann Penhallurick.

This is the second in our series Crime: why write it, why read it? for writers, readers, and fans of crime fiction and fact.

Crime writing – whether fiction or ‘true’ – inevitably stirs up the pot of justice. But justice is not set down on paper like law and is even more open to interpretation. What is presented as justice often depends on who is telling the story.

Join Siobhan Mullany and Ann Penhallurick as they tease out overlaps and contradictions of justice and law as they’ve come across them in their professional and crime-obsessed lives. Engage with more real-life case histories and with important questions of believable – and satisfying – truths and justice in crime writing.

The Zoom event will offer plenty of time to ask questions. Register and you’ll be sent the Zoom link.

Donate $10, help support women’s crime writing and reading, and go into the draw for a fabulous book prize.
