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.

The Times They Used to Be

Title: The Times They Used to Be
Author: Lucille Clifton
Call Number: PS3553.L45 T56 1974
Location: 3rd Floor Muth
Rating: Recommended
Book Review: Painfully poor language, but they are trying to set a scene of life for black Americans in the mid twentieth century. Random plots make it seem like snapshots of the time. Freaky sub-plot about a ghost-nun who a crazy uncle keeps trying to give a ride to only to find she has disappeared. A wee bit Twilight-zony.
