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
Taking place in Mexico during Pancho Villa's rebellion, this story revolves around a nameless old American man wishing to join Villa's army, an American school teacher who gets caught in the midst of the rebellion, and a General leading rebel troops. This is an excellent summer read full of emotion and identity as this trio establishes a cause-and-effect relationship with each other.
