About the Community of Readers

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.

A Wrinkle in Time

TitleA Wrinkle in Time
AuthorMadeleine L’Engle
Call NumberPS3523.E55 W756
RatingHighly Recommended
Book ReviewIn the spirit of the challenge, I chose both a science fiction book written by a woman (I'm calling it SciFi, some may say fantasy.  We can discuss...) and a book from the reading list.
Re-reading this book brought back some great childhood memories.  The themes found in this book are still relevant today - resistance to totalitarianism, nonconformity, the role of science, and defying expectations.
They are making a movie due out in 2018, so read the book first!
