Samantha Wills

A celebrated entrepreneur, creative director, writer, speaker. Her business memoir Of Gold and Dust is inspiration for anyone thinking seriously about their own start-up.
“I think in this day and age where our default is often to pick up our phones and scroll, it’s important to put something in there – like reading a book – as a circuit breaker. The more time I spend reading a book (and less time on social media) the better my mental health is. While both books and Netflix present the art of storytelling, reading evokes our active imagination, inviting us into Narnia with each page, rather than just numbly consuming whatever is presented to us via a screen.”

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.
