Escondido, CA - Escondido Public Library invites adult readers to join the 2nd Tuesday Book Club meeting on Tuesday, February 10, 2015, at 6:00 p.m. in the Turrentine Room. This month’s title is March by Geraldine Brooks.

From Louisa May Alcott’s beloved classic Little Women, Geraldine Brooks has animated the character of the absent father, March.   Brooks follows March as he leaves behind his family to aid the Union cause in the Civil War. His experiences will utterly change his marriage and challenge his most ardently held beliefs. A lushly written, wholly original tale steeped in the details of another time,   Brooks turns her talents to exploring the devastation and moral complexities of the Civil War through her brilliantly imagined tale of Mr. March.  With Mr. March, Brooks has created a conflicted and deeply sensitive man, a father who is struggling to reconcile duty to his fellow man with duty to his family against the backdrop of one of the grimmest periods in American history.

The 2nd Tuesday Book Club will continue on March 10, 2015, with a discussion on The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud. The title for April 14, 2015 will be Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman by Robert K. Massie.

All Library programs are free and open to the public. Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia Street in downtown Escondido. For more information about the 2nd Tuesday Book Club visit library.escondido.org or contact Neva Robinson at nrobinson@escondido.org or 760-839-4214.
