“When you think about what reading is and how it works, it honestly seems like magic. We look at some black ink on a white page, and from there, we can travel through other worlds, other universes, meet other people, feel real feelings. Reading harnesses the power of the human brain in a way that is really quite extraordinary. It demonstrates how powerful our minds are. Reading is an everyday magic, and I am grateful every day that I grew up in a time of mass literacy, because my life would be markedly worse without reading in it.”

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.
