Literature Development Subcommittee Meetings

Tamara P., Chair, Literature Development Subcommittee. Work has begun on one new WSO literature project, and a second is about to begin. 

On Dec. 2, a team of writers and editors held their second meeting concerning the Little Big Red Book, a proposed introductory text on the most essential elements of ACA recovery and practice. There are approximately 13 members in this subcommittee. The team is meeting monthly, and its next call is scheduled for Jan. 6, 1 pm eastern US. 

The kickoff call is being scheduled for a second development team that will focus on a new Loving Parent workbook. We anticipate holding this launch meeting in late January or early February 2018.
