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
Exploring the life and death of one of the most famous dogs in history, LAIKA presents a simple question: was the technological knowledge gained after the launch of Sputnik II worth the loss a dog like Kudryavka? Abadzis presents the facts with a detached kind of compassion, knitting together disparate narratives with the unifying thread of Kudryavka’s story. Thoroughly researched, LAIKA gives an intimate look at the people surrounding an event that would ultimately change the world. This is a must-read for anyone who’s interested in the history of spaceflight.
