Reading books can change lives

Hosts Claire Hooper and Paul Kennedy will be joined by comedian Nazeem Hussein and authors Christian White, Tony Birch and Alice Pung to talk about their reading lives during the event on Tuesday 14 September. The guests will talk about books that have changed their lives and made them smile, and books they would take into outer space.

The event celebrates Australian Reading Hour, presented by Australia Reads, a book industry collaboration of authors, booksellers, libraries and publishers who champion and promote the many mental health and lifestyle benefits of reading.

The book reading initiative is also aimed at encouraging the next generation of avid book readers to significantly increase book reading by all Australians, no matter the format they read.

Victoria Reads: Stories that Matter will be held on Tuesday 14 September from 7pm to 8.30pm. Attendees must book for the online Zoom event at libraries and books change lives.
