John Hughes

“The characters from the books I love have penetrated me so deeply and are now so familiar to me that it seems they have always been with me. Time and again, I arrive at a fresh understanding of them. For me, a good part of understanding what it is to be human (and inhuman!) has come from reading.”

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.
