Celebrating Australian Reading Hour

We’re delighted that these well-known identities are celebrating Australian Reading Hour on Thursday, 9th March 2023.

Vika and Linda Bull

Vika and Linda Bull have been singing together their whole lives. They’ve played gigs for Nelson Mandela and the King of Tonga, been nominated for five ARIA Awards, and received the Order of Australia (OAM) medal in 2022. With charming honesty and infectious humour, Vika and Linda recount the highs and lows, twists and turns they’ve navigated in their book, No Bull.

She is presently the staff writer for the nation’s biggest women’s magazine, The Australian Women’s Weekly, covering everything from cold-case murders and cults to celebrities and sports stars.


Rob Mills

Rob Mills has built a prolific career across television, film, stage, and musicals, performing prominent roles in shows such as Wicked, Jesus Christ Superstar, Grease, Neighbours, and Dancing with the Stars. His fondness for storytelling and entertainment (not to mention a bit of blokey banter) found new expression in Putting on a Show, his first book.

She co-hosts The Guardian’s Book It In podcast and Margin Notes podcast and is a columnist for the RiotACT, a regular books critic and writer, and was a 2020 judge for the Stella Prize and Chair of the 2021 Stella Prize judging panel.
