Reporting Pell

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 10 August 2019
Author / Presenters: Louise Milligan, Lawrie Zion

Louise MIlligan listened to abuse survivors and used her exceptional skill to document their experiences. In the wake of the publication of Cardinal, George Pell was found guilty of sexual crimes against children and sentenced to six years' jail. Lawrie Zion talks about what such a story meant for the journalist. How did she deal with the unfolding trauma as she documented it? And in the aftermath of the trial, how does she now remember the process of writing such a powerful book?
