NEW FEATURE: THE LITTLE BIG READ

To help jump-start conversation at WAAL 2018, we’re trying something new: The Little Big Read. Imagine a traditional conference Big Read – where all attendees read the same book – but think article instead of book. When you register, select one of the four articles below (each matched to a speech or session track) and we’ll send you the full text. Read it and you’ll be ready to jump into the mix in Q&As and at lunch Thursday, where tables will be themed by article. Start your devices, please. Let the reading begin!
