Diana Plater

Nature-loving novelist, non-fiction author, playwright, journalist and travel writer, whose books include the novel, Whale Rock.
“I couldn’t breathe without reading. I soak up information all day long, but reading novels and non-fiction as a form of education and relaxation is different. With novels in particular, it gives me a window into human nature, opens up vast worlds of knowledge, and inspires my own writing. That has to be healthy!”

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.
