“Books and reading have been part of my life for as long as I can remember… I think reading is singular in the way it requires the reader to participate by imagining and interpreting what the author gives them. Everyone has a unique perspective to bring to what they read, as well as something to gain from reading. Whether you’re reading for enjoyment, or reading to analyse a work on its deeper levels, I think any form of participation in literature enriches your mind and your life. So get reading, Australia!”

Are you ready for Australian Reading Hour 2021?
Ok, take a deep breath, and repeat after us.

“I will read or listen to an Australian book, whether written or drawn or illustrated or spoken aloud, wherever I may be, in city or bush, in the bath, in bed or up a tree, for one hour on Tuesday 14 September 2021. I will read silently or aloud, I will read by myself or in a crowd. I will read a story that matters to me.”

Great! We’d love to keep you up to date with the latest news and events.
