Lainie Anderson has been a columnist with Adelaide’s Sunday Mail for 14 years. Her 30-year career in journalism and public relations includes stints at the Herald Sun in Melbourne, The Times in London and the South Australian Tourism Commission.

 

In 2016 she was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to gauge the significance of Adelaide’s historic Vickers Vimy aircraft and retrace the route of the 1919 Air Race from England to Australia.
