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
The Lowland is a complex story of two brothers coming of age in 1960s India, and the radically different paths their lives will take. While an interesting read and an impressive scope of narrative, I found it difficult to connect with the characters on an emotional level. While I understand the motivations behind the characters, it was hard to feel any true compassion for them. Others may find this book more enjoyable than I did.
