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
One of the first Star Wars books published after Disney bought the rights to the franchise, Aftermath picks up right after, as the name suggests, the conclusion of Return of the Jedi.  It features a large cast of protagonists (including one character from the films, Wedge Antilles) on both sides of the conflict as the Rebellion fights to continue bringing down the Empire and the Imperials struggle to rebuild their power structure in the wake of the Emperor's death.  The present-tense writing style may be jarring to some, but others will appreciate the colorful cast of characters and events.
