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 book is an insightful look at the history of the science and scientists that led to the creation of LIGO and the 2015 discovery of gravitational waves. While the engineers and concepts tackled by the LIGO team may be beyond the reach of some, the book brings humanity to the forefront. Part history, part conversation, and part lyricism, Levin’s book chronicles the many heroes and hiccups that ultimately led to the confirmation of Einstein’s theory of gravitational waves.
