About the Community of Readers

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.

American Born Chinese

1st Floor Graphic Novel
Book Review
The graphic novel format is perfect for conveying the author's story of how it feels to be an Asian growing up in the U.S. The illustrations aptly and humorously capture the awkward teenage years of just wanting to fit in.  Yang creatively intertwines traditional Asian stereotypes and the Monkey King's story with his own.
