National Year of Reading 2012

Introducing our 2014 Ambassador, Australia's own William McInnes!

William is one of Australia's most popular writers. He's written five books, with another one on the way later this year.  In 2011, with his wife Sarah Watt he co-wrote Worse Things Happen at Sea, which was named the best non-fiction title in the ABIA and the Indie Awards in 2012.

Also an award-winning actor, William has won two Logies and an AFI Award for Best Actor for his role in the film Unfinished Sky. He received critical and public acclaim for his leading role in the film Look Both Ways, written and directed by Sarah Watt, and most recently starred in the ABC television series The Time of Our Lives and Hello Birdie.
