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
While I enjoyed Mills’ interactions with the elusive Nelle Lee, I felt as if I learned more about Lee’s friends and neighbors that Nelle herself. On the plus side, Mills does a good job creating a scene so that, at times, I felt as if I were a fly on the wall. On the negative side, I don’t feel as if I know any more about Nelle Harper Lee than when I started. She remains an enigma.
