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.

Title: Bark
Author: Lorrie Moore
Call Number: McNaughton
Location: 1st Floor McNaughton
Rating: Highly Recommended
Book Review: Lorrie Moore’s writing is like a fine Mourvèdre, a wine known for its meaty richness and wonderful longevity. In this collection of eight stories, she shows that her mastery over words continues: they tumble over the reader like wine over an oenophile’s tongue, igniting images and emotions. Though the book is short, the themes are deep and touch upon the struggles people face connecting (Debarking) and disconnecting (Paper Loses). As always, Moore’s dark humor--with its aftertaste of sweet, salty, sour, and bitter-- is to be savored like a classic vintage.
