Australia Reads is a nationwide campaign to get people reading!
This November you are invited to share and celebrate the joys of reading. People of all ages and walks of life are challenged to pick up a book and read, to yourself or to your children.
The main event is on Thursday 12 November – the Australian Reading Hour, when people from all over Australia will be reading throughout the day.
Don’t miss our special Reading Hour live stream Storytime session at 10:30am on Thursday 12 November. Debbie will be reading Australian picture books to celebrate!
Also, be sure to register for Victoria Reads' online exclusive reading from The Dressmaker’s Secret, the long-awaited sequel to the best-selling novel and award-winning film, The Dressmaker. Check out the event for more details!
