Geraldine Brooks’ “March” on tap for Chapman Book Club

November 29, 2010

Fans of historical fiction, Louisa May Alcott — whose birthday is today! — and any opportunity to talk about good books, will want to mark their calendars for the Dec. 8 meeting of the Chapman Book Club for Faculty and Staff when the group discusses the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, March by Geraldine Brooks.

In March, Brooks imagines the Civil War experiences of Mr. March, the father of those four little women who famously held down the home front and awaited his letters in the pages of Little Women. But Brooks creates a deeply conflicted Mr. March, whose war time reality is far different than anything he ever shares in his letters home.

The group meets from noon to 1 p.m. in the 4th Floor Frank Mt. Pleasant Library of Special Collections and Archives at Leatherby Libraries. Brown bag lunches welcome. For more information, contact Stacy Russo at russo@chapman.edu.
