Announcing Mount Auburn’s New Book

November 28, 2012

The Friends of Mount Auburn is excited to announce the publication of its long-anticipated photographic portrait of the Cemetery. During the past two decades, Richard Cheek has painstakingly explored Mount Auburn’s landscape, capturing its most iconic and celebrated views as well as its more intimate corners and hidden details. Mount Auburn Cemetery: Beauty on the Edge of Eternity celebrates the mood and spirit of this extraordinary place, as seen through Cheek’s stunning photographs. In addition to the vivid imagery showing the Cemetery in all four seasons, this 164-page hardcover book includes a foreword written by Dave Barnett, President & CEO of Mount Auburn, an introduction by Bill Clendaniel, President Emeritus, and short chapter introductions by historian Janet Heywood, former Vice President of Interpretive Programs.

A limited supply of books will arrive just in time for the holiday season. Order today to reserve your copy by calling (617) 607-1993 or visiting our web store.

Richard Cheek will also be signing books at the Reception following our Candle Lighting Service on Tuesday, December 18th. Copies of the book will be available for sale during the event.
