Baum announced as inaugural SLNSW Reader in Residence

Author, journalist and broadcaster Caroline Baum has been announced the inaugural Reader in Residence at the State Library of New South Wales.

As part of the 12-month residency, Baum will be given special access to State Library resources to creatively explore lesser known areas of the library’s collection, and ‘bring their stories to light’.

‘I’m interested in discovering and uncovering forgotten stories and people who deserve to have a light shone on them as part of deepening our understanding of who we are today,’ said Baum in a statement. Baum said she can’t wait to start ‘fossicking through the treasures in the library and share them with the public in as many ways possible.’

Commencing 20 April, the residency is supported by the State Library Foundation through a donation from library supporter Nancy Tuck.
