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.

Lincoln in the Bardo

TitleLincoln in the Bardo
AuthorGeorge Saunders
Call NumberMcNaughton
Location1st Floor McNaughton
Book ReviewThis is one of the strangest books that I have ever read. The year is 1862, the setting is a grave yard in Washington. President Lincoln goes to the cemetery to say goodbye to and mourn the death of his beloved son, Willie. Little does know the odd assortment of spirits that witness his visit. The conversations and reactions of these souls make for a unique story.
