#ReadAtHome #StayHome
  • @australiareads will take place over 17 days in September as a celebration of reading, our collective love of the arts, and of the talent of local authors. We’re thrilled that @dervlamctiernan is one of this year’s ambassadors and that @beckfeiner_illustrations is the inaugural Illustration Ambassador.
📚
Dervla says,
'It’s wonderful for readers and writers to have a special day to celebrate what we love. I think too about the people who have wandered away from books over the years, and just need a reminder of what they’ve been missing and a way back in. Australia Reads can be that reminder.' ✏️
Beck says,
'Being surrounded by wonderful picture books from a young age, inspired me to dream of one day becoming an illustrator and author. However, the less obvious reason is that reading has provided me with a way to deal with stress and turmoil in my life. There is nothing more comforting than knowing you have a great book next to your bed. That comfort and escapism has been incredibly powerful for me’

#AustraliaReadsAtHome
  • Ursula, Gareth and Alice have never met before.

Ursula thinks she killed the love of her life.
Gareth's been receiving strange postcards.
And Alice is being stalked.

None of them are used to relying on others – but when the three strangers' lives unexpectedly collide, there's only one thing for it: they have to stick together. Otherwise, one of them will die.
  • It’s Banjo Time yet again! Aspiring authors, ready your manuscripts - #TheBanjoPrize is now open for submissions! We’re looking for exciting new Australian voices telling the sorts of stories that we love to read.

While this year's process may look a little different to that of previous years - with manuscripts read at home rather than in-office - we're still so excited to see new Australian writing! While there’s so much uncertainty in the world, stories are more important than ever 💞
