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
I'm not a huge historical nut, so I had a bit of a difficult time following this book.  It goes back and forth between the insanely difficult creation of the Chicago World Fair and a serial killer.  It's defiantly a fascinating read, but I would have liked to read more about the killer.  I did enjoy reading about the impact and how the times were so different back then!
