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
I chose this book in honor of banned book week in September. I enjoyed reading about the simple life in and around a southern community. How not knowing a neighbor well conjures outlandish ideas. And how quickly the close community becomes complicated and entangled during the trial. The ugly words hit so hard when describing the negative attention placed on Atticus's kids, and how ugly the Maycomb community becomes toward one another. Although I don't agree, it is not difficult to believe that this book was so often challenged by libraries, schools, and reading communities around the nation.
