Editors NSW: Zoom meeting: editor as historian
Author and editor Cathy Perkins will talk about her editorial work at the State Library of NSW, which led to years of historical research for her new biography, The Shelf Life of Zora Cross (Monash University Publishing, 2019). She will discuss accessing original documents in the library’s collection, and how her background as an editor influenced her process of researching and writing the book.
Cathy Perkins edits the award-winning SL magazine, other publications and exhibition text at the State Library of NSW, having previously worked as an editor for academic and trade publishers.
