Lose Yourself In A WABulous Book

The form for choosing a book for WAB Lab Reads is now OPEN. 

The DEADLINE for signing up is Monday 10th December.

The link to the form is here: WAB Lab Reads 2019

There are over 20 books to choose from, including translations of some books in Chinese and individual publications in Chinese. Also attached is a poster of all the books and a booklet with blurbs about all of the books.
 
WAB Lab Reads is open to all teaching staff, TAs and support staff.
When the deadline passes, and all the participants have chosen a book, we aim to order the books before the winter break so that they will be here sometime in January. Then, the WAB Lab team will help organise participants in groups based on the book they have chosen.
