A collection in celebration of 2012 Year of Reading Australia. Readers chose fiction, non fiction and poetry - we only asked that the readings should have some sort of Australian hook. So they can be by an Australian author, or about Australia, or just have a prominent bit of Australianess in the plot. Failing that: even being performed by Australians will do! And that the works should be PD in Australia and the U.S.A. Introduction by Annise

(Summary by Ruth Golding) See also Volume 1 & Volume 2.
