Australia Reads | Australian Reading Hour | 1-12 Nov 2020

Australia Reads & Australian Reading Hour

In November, Australia Reads invites Australians of all ages and from all walks of life to share and celebrate the joys of reading.

Whether you’re picking up a book for the first time or your head is already stuck in one, there’s plenty of books, activities and events as part of their festivities.

Australia Reads is a collaborative project between many Australian organisations aimed at lifting literacy rates and improving reading participation.


This year they are also hosting three virtual events to celebrate the many benefits of reading.
