About the speaker: Deborah Beck is an historian, author and artist who has exhibited her work widely, and has written three books, including Set in Stone, which won a NSW Premier’s History Award in 2012. Her book Rayner Hoff: the life of a sculptor, (NewSouth Publishers) was launched by Barry Humphries in Hoff’s former studio in March 2018.
