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.

William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back

Book Review
If you’re a fan of Shakespeare with some Empire Strikes Back leanings, this book is a fun read. Any book that begins with, “If flurries be the food of quests, snow on,” gets my full attention. Not only is the book a wonderful retelling of The Empire Strikes Back, but it’s a fun exercise to try to place the Shakespearean allusions from Romeo and Juliet to King Lear and all works in between.
