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.

Call Number: Graphic PS 153 .N5 A323 2011
Location: 1st Floor Graphic Novels

Book Review: This is a terrific graphic novel filled with short stories and poems by a dozen early African-American writers.  The art work for each author is done in a unique style which adds greatly to the mood of each piece. Brief bibliographies for both writers and artists are also included at the back. This beautiful little book is a marvelous introduction to the diversity and quality of early African-American literature. I highly recommend it.
