An unsolved murder takes one of Australia's foremost writers of non-fiction into the 1930s Bohemian demi-monde, exploring the fate of a talented young woman trying to make her way in that artistic, sexualised, 'liberated' world. Join us to celebrate Gideon Haigh's new book A Scandal in Bohemia. Former Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Christine Nixon will launch the book about the life and death of Mollie Dean.
