Katherine Firkin on her debut crime novel


Please note: This is an online event.

Journalist Katherine Firkin brings real-life experience to her debut novel. A gritty thriller set in inner-city Melbourne, Sticks and Stones is inspired by the countless criminal trials Firkin covered as a crime and court reporter.

Firkin will be joined by Georgia Love to discuss the novel, and the true crime cases that shaped it – including the unbelievably graphic details that often went unreported outside of the court room.

This is an online event and free to attend. Please book here, and you will be sent a unique Zoom link.
