Lili Wilkinson

Award-winning Australian author of sixteen books for children and young adults.
“Reading helps us escape a world that recently has become scary and small. But more important than that, it fosters empathy. To live inside someone else’s head helps remind us that everyone is different, and every life and experience and identity has value.”

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.
