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.

Hamilton: The Revolution

TitleHamilton: The Revolution
AuthorLin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter
Call NumberML50.M6736 H3 2016
Location3rd Floor Music
RatingHighly Recommended
Book ReviewA must-read for fans of the musical, co-written by its creator, this book contains not only the full libretto, but writings about its creation, writing, and the cast and creative team from its inception up until publication about a year after the play made its Broadway debut. It also offers deep insights into Miranda's influences and writing process, analyzing the musical's origins in not only American history but in contemporary hip-hop, as well as the musical's place in modern American culture. As a bonus, it has a ton of behind-the-scenes photos of the cast and staging of the original Broadway production.
