Australia Reads and Australian Reading Hour

Australia Reads is a cross-industry project to promote and champion the power of reading, literacy and books.

The Australian Reading Hour has become the flagship event of Australia Reads!

The Australia Reads festival begins Tuesday 1 September 2020 and culminates with the main event, Australian Reading Hour on Thursday 17 September.

This week the Australia Reads Ambassadors were announced for this year’s campaign, with Beck Feiner, Anna Fienberg AM, Jacqueline Harvey, Peter Helliar, Will Kostakis and Dervla McTiernan joining forces to promote books and reading.

The current campaign is centered around the #AustraliaReadsAtHome hashtag to promote the many benefits of reading to those who are going into quarantine or self-isolation, or as a way to keep younger ones entertained if schools are closed.
