Join author Stella Budrikis who will talk about her book that retraces this infamous 'baby farm' tragedy.

In 1907, Alice Mitchell was arrested for the murder of baby Ethel Booth. During the inquest and subsequent trial, the general public was horrified to learn that at least 37 infants had died in Mitchell's care in the previous six years.

This book retraces this infamous 'baby farm' tragedy and a trial which gripped the nation and led to legislative changes to protect children's welfare.
