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.

Flowers for Algernon

Title: Flowers for Algernon
Author: Daniel Keyes
Call Number: PS3561.E769 F5 1987
Location: 2nd Floor Arts and Humanities
Rating: Highly Recommended
Book Review: Wow--what an emotional roller coaster of a book!  I find myself frequently revisiting the thought provoking and gut wrenching story of Charlie Gordon, a man with an IQ of 68 whose intelligence skyrockets following a controversial experimental procedure.  What follows is a beautiful and heart breaking exploration of humanity and the jumbled path of self-discovery.
