GatheringReaders @ CEDU

Book club in UAE! :)

Myra here.

I am very excited to be co-moderating a book club for our doctoral students and colleagues at the College of Education (CEDU), UAE University (UAEU) this summer.

Today will be our first meeting and I have created this poll of recommended titles from the book club members that will enable us to see at a glance which books we wish to read this June/July period.

Each member can choose up to two books from this list of recommended titles.

I am eager to see which books will get the most vote!

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
