HARVARD — Folks who have been dropping in on the Brown Bag Book Club’s monthly gatherings at the Harvard Public Library will have a break of sorts over the summer, but they’ll spend it reading two books instead of one.

The first is “March,” by Geraldine Brooks. The other is Louisa May Alcott’s “Little Women.”

“March” is a fictionalized account of the Civil War experiences of the “little women’s” father. The new book places the beloved classic in a historical context.

The first meeting of next season of the Brown Bag Book Club will take place on Sept. 20, at noon, in the Hapgood Room. This is a drop-in group. All you have to do is read the books, pack a lunch, and come for an hour of discussion. The library provides coffee.

The meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month from September through June.
