About the Community of Readers

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
When Oprah Winfrey mentioned that she played the lead role in the movie version of this story, I decided to read the book first. I never knew how cruelly the slaves were treated during the Civil War and the years afterwards. This books shows the how guilt and pain can weigh one down but perseverance, determination and community support can pull a person through. Now I know why they say: It takes a village to raise a child.
