“As a kid reading can be a way out of confusion, out of other people’s expectations, their rules and bullying. A story can make the world magical again. Reading can also be a way in as well – a way of finding out who you are, helping you understand your own darkness and ugliness, your history and how you can shape your future.”

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.
