WORD FOR WORD FESTIVAL – Panel Discussion – The Pell Toll

Word for Word Festival

Event Date: 22 November 2020
Author / Presenters: Melissa Davey, Louise Milligan & Paul Kennedy

For the investigative journalists immersed in the trial of disgraced Cardinal George Pell, this case presented a professional feat of endurance and personal scrutiny like no other. In The Case of George Pell: Reckoning with Child Sexual Abuse by Clergy, Guardian Australia’s Melbourne bureau chief Melissa Davey presents a dispassionate and thorough account of what occurred. For Louise Milligan, the Pell case saw the publication and subsequent withdrawal of her first book Cardinal: The Rise and Fall of George Pell. Her latest book, Witness, is a searing examination of the power imbalance in our legal system, and includes her own experience as a witness in the trial of the decade. Join these two award-winning journalists for a discussion like no other with ABC television presenter Paul Kennedy, who co-authored the 2010 book Hell on the Way to Heaven with Chrissie Foster.
