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.

Are You My Mother?

Are You My Mother?
Alison Bechdel
Call Number
1st Floor Graphic Novel
Somewhat Recommended
Book Review
In contrast to her previous book, in which she spends a great deal of time drawing parallels between herself and her father, Bechdel’s memoir about her mother is disengaged and distant. It’s an analytical examination of their differences and a search for the exact moment when the invisible “gap” opened between them. People who enjoy reading psychology cases and therapist notes will find this interesting, while those expecting something personal will probably find it too dry and academic.
