April is Aussie Author Month. The aim is to feature bestselling and upcoming Australian authors and get readers, bloggers and booksellers to highlight their favourite Australian books.

Part of Aussie Author Month will also be to promote donations to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. The ILF is a charity whose aim is to raise literacy levels among Indigenous Australians in rural and remote communities. The ILF works in partnership with the Australian Book Industry.
