Established in 2007 by the Leatherby Libraries, the Community of Readers is the summer reading program for Chapman University. This program is open to everyone who has borrowing privileges at the Leatherby Libraries and a current library account, including students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Members select books from the Leatherby Libraries and receive prizes upon submission of their first review. The only requirement is that books must be obtained through the Leatherby Libraries.

Book Review: This is the first book of David Sedaris' that I have read and I must say I plan to read more. This book consists of various humorous stories that were highly entertaining; a great casual read for anyone looking for something to lighten their day.

  1. I agree Jessica, this was the first Sedaris book I read and I was hooked. Very funny.

  2. I love this book!! But I love all Sedaris so I'm sort of bias :)
