Matriarch of the criminal underworld..... or the Robin Hood of inner Sydney?

The legend of Kate Leigh as Sydney's famed brother madam has loomed large in TV's Underbelly and accounts of Sydney's criminal history from the 1920s to the 1960s.  But she has never had a biography of her own before now.

Join us when novelist and historian Leigh Straw tells us how this flamboyant, daring, tough-talking Reformatory girl from Dubbo made a fortune in Sydney and became a leading underworld and community figure.
