Fiona Parker, Dr Michelle Smith and Tony Wilson

To Kill A Mockingbird is one of the most significant American books written in the latter half of the 20th century. Endlessly popular and with themes still relevant today, it is the perfect subject for a new trial with the audience as judge.

Join three outstanding literary presenters – ABC presenter Fiona Parker, academic and writer Dr Michelle Smith and author and presenter Tony Wilson – in the historic and atmospheric Castlemaine Magistrates’ Court for a memorable and moving part-debate, part-discussion of the novels of Harper Lee.

Before becoming an ABC presenter, Fiona Parker specialised in arts and entertainment journalism. Dr Michelle Smith is an academic who has published widely in research journals and in The Age, The Washington Post, New Statesman and The Drum. Tony Wilson is a radio and television personality and successful writer of books for adults and children. He gained notoriety as the winner of the ABC television show, Race Around the World.
