Australians are passionate readers and we love to talk about books too!

You can also host your own events as part of the Australian Reading Hour, as standalone events at any time of year, or even present your own book festival!

Together we’re growing a nation of readers, celebrating and supporting local writers and illustrators, sparking interesting conversations, and strengthening communities through books.
