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.

The Nightingale

Book Review
Set in WWII France, the war unfolds through the lives of two estranged sisters. While their relationship is less developed, the book is worth reading to learn about life in a village during occupied France and the French Resistance. The Nightingale is based on a real woman who was a heroine in WWII.  The book's research seems solid.  If you are interested in another perspective about WWII (and can handle the emotional toll such a book inevitably takes), this is worth reading.
