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
In the near future, houses are fireproofed, and firemen now burn books. Bradbury's brief glance into the future shows the dangers of absolute control, a society lulled to sleep by television and cheap thrills, where critical thinking has been outlawed. A natural extension of Orwell's 1984 and a true science fiction classic.
