Informative Review of the Bishop/Kettle Trial
FOBM members and other interested parties might enjoy Beth Kraig's synopsis of the world of Betty MacDonald and the Bishop et al vs MacDonald libel trial that ended in 1951. Published in 1998, this is a thoughtful exposition of the issues of the trial and its impact on literary Seattle. -FA

It was a tough ordeal for Betty to endure, and I'm sure we're all glad she prevailed. It is somewhat amusing to think that the jury was "ordered" by Judge Wilkins to read "Egg," ... but they obviously enjoyed it and Betty.
