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
The first half of this book is a biography of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, while the second half details the growth of the institution after his death and its prevalence in Hollywood.  It is quite a surprising read, both in the amount of detail Wright was able to gather on the secretive organization and in how deeply entrenched it is in Hollywood.
