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
This is the first in the Series of Unfortunate Events books. It is unusual for a young readers book (at least for me) in that it makes no bones about the fact that the orphan protagonists are not going to have a happy ending. At least not yet. That being said, the narrator has an engaging style that turns a dark tale into a humorous page turner. I didn't expect to like the book as much as I did and look forward to picking up the next one. And a bonus discovery: the audiobooks are read by Tim Curry!
