Hannah Kent

International bestselling writer of the award-winning Burial Rights, The Good People and original feature film, Run Rabbit Run
“Reading is magical to me. Books are portals to different places, countries and times and, like any returned traveller, I always finish a book feeling wiser for it, my mind stronger, my heart bigger. Only reading allows me to live any number of lives, all vastly different from my own. Only reading helps me understand those differences.”

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.
