"This Christmas, many of us will give books to those we care about – our family, our friends and our colleagues. Books that will tell stories across countries, cultures and even galaxies. Stories that will make readers feel a whole range of emotions – some will smile, some cringe and perhaps some might even gasp in terror.
"Many will enjoy the experience of what a book can bring into their lives as readers. Unfortunately, there are many Australian’s who still don’t know the joy of how it feels to be engaged with, entertained by engulfed in what a good book can offer. These Australians largely live in remote Indigenous communities and deserve all the reading opportunities afforded to you and I, as fellow Australians.
"If you can’t imagine your holiday season without a good book, can you imagine what it would be like to have every season without one?
"I can’t and that’s why I support the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. I hope you will too."
- Dr Anita Heiss, ILF Ambasssador
