Now in its fifth year, the UC Book Project continues to be popular with commencing students and staff. The 2017 UC Book of the Year was announced last week with great interest: The White Earth. The author, Andrew McGahan was present at the launch and warmly congratulated the University for this initiative. All commencing students will receive a free copy of The White Earth when they accept their offers. Staff will be invited to collect their copy from the Co-op Bookshop or online (eBook) later this month. Teaching staff are encouraged to find ways to use some the themes of the novel in their curriculum – formally or informally.
