“We can never truly know what it’s like to be someone else, but a well-written book is the best available insight into the inner worlds of other people. It’s important for empathy and imagination to try and exist beyond the boundaries of your own reality, and books are an essential tool to help us do this.”

Take the Pledge

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.
