Paddington 55+ Club: Away with Words - The Life of a Cruise Journalist with...
Wed. 7 December 2016, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Over 55's are invited to join Helen Hutcheon as she recalls some of the incredible journeys she has taken as Australia’s leading cruise ship journalist.
During her 60 year career with P&O Cruises, Woman’s Day, the Australian Women’s Weekly, Vogue Living and Travelweek, Helen was part of a now long-gone era of journalism where writers bashed out stories on clapped-out typewriters, kept carbon paper copies of stories and brought rolls of film back from the other side of the world to process in the office darkroom. She has also visited many of the world’s most exotic and far-flung locations and has met the likes of the Shah of Iran, Princess Grace of Monaco and Audrey Hepburn.
