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.

Marilynne Robinson
Call Number

Highly Recommended
Book Review
In Lila, Robinson captures the title character’s ruminations on existence to perfection. Lila is a marginalized woman who has spent her life in hiding until she marries the minister of the town of Gilead. Those familiar with Robinson’s previous works will enjoy seeing the town of Gilead through an outsider’s eyes. Lila doesn’t necessarily answer the big questions about love or happiness, solitude or salvation, poverty or prosperity, but simply asking them sets this novel firmly into the spiritual realm.
