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.

Book Review
Recommended as a work of magical realism, Blackbird House is a series of short stories centered around the occupants of a sprawling Cape Cod farmhouse over the span of 200 years.  Hoffman beautifully captures the tapestry of life with her vivid prose and paints a poignant picture of loss, longing and resilience.  Her words follow you long after you have left the pages behind.
