After months of reading alone it’s time for Victorians to read together! 

Join us online for an exclusive reading from The Dressmaker’s Secret, the long-awaited sequel to the best-selling novel and award-winning film, The Dressmaker. Let author Rosalie Ham bring 1950s Melbourne to life with help from a fabulous supporting cast. See Libbi Gorr, Jacinta Parsons and Brian Nankervis voice the characters you love (and a few new favourites) in this state-wide event hosted by Public Libraries Victoria’s Angela Savage, then stick around to share your thoughts on this new chapter in Tilly’s life. 

Register now to join the discussion via Zoom and don’t forget to dress to impress – wouldn’t Tilly expect it?

Thursday November 12, 7:30-8:30pm. Register via Victoriareads2020


In November, we’re inviting 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 our festivities.

On Thursday 12 November we’ll celebrate Australian Reading Hour. You’re invited to stop what you’re doing for an hour, pick up a book and read to yourself or the children in your life.

Join us and unwind, get inspired and find joy in books! From islands, blue shores, bushland to red heart – Australia Reads.
