Reading challenge to tackle illiteracy

A national reading program to tackle the problem of illiteracy in Aboriginal communities is set to be launched at a major literary conference in Melbourne.
The Australian Readers' Challenge will be launched during the Writers at Como conference in front of Pulitzer Prize winner Frank McCourt and prominent Australian writer John Marsden.
The challenge is a project encouraging readers from preschoolers to adults to read 10 books, including seven from a set book list.
