Because books can be life-changing, the Copyright Agency has launched a campaign, This Book Changed My Life. You and your students are invited to take part by posting about a book – or other creative work – that has had a major impact on you – and you can also make a pledge via social media to respect creators by paying for books and songs, asking permission before using others’ works and giving credit to creators. When you make your pledge don’t forget to use the hashtag #respectcreators and help spread the message!

In the video below, Jackie French talks about the way Tom Keneally’s books changed her life.
