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: Mauritius
Author: Theresa Rebeck
Call Number: PS3568.E2697 M38 2008
Location: 2nd Floor Arts and Humanities
Rating: Recommended
Book Review:  Mauritius is a wonderful 21st century example of excellent playwriting. Each scene is calibrated with just the right amount of tension and intrigue to keep the story moving forward. The characters all seem to be balancing on a razor, as they negotiate the power of a stamp collection. That’s right – this tightly wound drama is about a stamp collection, and stamps have never been more interesting or dangerous. While plays are meant to be seen more than read, this was an exciting gasp-out-loud page turner that I recommend to readers and theatre fans alike.
