“Reading allows us to retreat into another world. It doesn’t have to be a fantasy world of witches and fauns it can be a recognisable world, like a high school. Reading allows for ‘ideal experimentation’. We can follow our protagonists as they experiment and traverse new social terrain. Through reading we can live vicariously through the characters. To this extent reading serves a valuable social, intellectual and critical purpose.”

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.
