March: Pulitzer Prize Winner (A Novel)

This book is about Gwendolyn Brooks
In "March: Pulitzer Prize Winner," Geraldine Brooks breathes life into the character of Mr. March from Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women," crafting an evocative narrative set during the tumultuous times of the Civil War. Published on January 31, 2006, this novel, a recipient of the prestigious Pulitzer Prize, delves deep into themes of racial justice as it follows Mr. March's journey away from his family to aid the Union cause. His harrowing experiences at war lead to profound transformations in his beliefs and his relationships, particularly impacting his marriage. Through Brooks’s "pitch-perfect writing" (USA Today), readers are transported into an era marked by conflict and moral dilemmas, making it an essential read for college students studying social justice, history, or literature. The novel not only explores the personal changes that war wreaks on an individual but also offers a broader reflection on the racial injustices of the time, encouraging readers to ponder how far we have come and how much further we have to go in the quest for equality.
