Only the name needs to be mentioned for Australians to know the tragic public story about how baby Azaria was taken by a dingo in 1980, the subsequent media frenzy, imprisonment and exoneration. It is a story of recovery and resilience in modern Australia.
The Tamar Valley Writers Festival has partnered with the Tamar Valley Peace Festival to bring Lindy to Launceston on August 5, in conversation with journalist Dr Fiona Reynolds. The interview ties perfectly with the festival's 2021 theme, 'peace in recovery'.
Dr Reynolds interviewed Lindy as part of her PhD thesis exploring the behind-the-scenes story and impact of the competitive media industry on ordinary Australians who found themselves suddenly famous through tragic circumstances.
The research led to the number one ranking podcast Accidental Celebrity, featuring other survivors of trauma such as Stuart Diver, Todd Russell, James Scott, Bruce and Denise Morcombe and Rosie Batty.
Dr Reynolds, a journalist, editor and media executive with more than 30 years experience, will discuss her work before joining Lindy in conversation.
