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 Parable of the Sower

TitleThe Parable of the Sower
AuthorOctavia Butler
Call NumberPS3552 .U827 P37 1993
Location2nd Floor Humanities
RatingHighly Recommended
Book ReviewWritten in 1993, Butler shows a prescience for a world unraveling due to climate change, political turmoil, and police corruption. Born into this world, Lauren Olamina is an empath who reveals the birth of a new religion, Earthseed. From violence to the promise of a new life, this novel leaves you wanting more. I see more Octavia Butler in my future.
