Hello readers! Join us to discuss Geraldine Brooks' Pulitzer Prize-winning novel "March." We'll meet on January 18, 7:00 p.m., on Zoom. Publisher's Weekly says:

"Brooks, who based the character of March on Alcott's transcendentalist father, Bronson, relies heavily on primary sources for both the Concord and wartime scenes; her characters speak with a convincing 19th-century formality, yet the narrative is always accessible. Through the shattered dreamer March, the passion and rage of Marmee and a host of achingly human minor characters, Brooks's affecting, beautifully written novel drives home the intimate horrors and ironies of the Civil War and the difficulty of living honestly with the knowledge of human suffering."

We have a limited number of copies in the print collection...if there isn't a copy available, head on over to our Overdrive collection where we have unlimited downloading of the ebook in the month before the event.

Register now, and an email with the Zoom link will be sent out the day of the event.
