Arnold Zable

Acclaimed writer, novelist, writer and human rights advocate.
“The art of story is the art of the specific. We are introduced to particular characters — and we discover the great paradox at the heart of great storytelling: a great story is both specific and universal, both about difference, and about that which unites us — a mirror in which we see ourselves, and our own lives, reflected in the lives of peoples from many times and places.”

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.
