A City So Grand: the Rise of an American Metropolis, Boston 1850 – 1900 (2010) is a lively history of Boston by Stephen Puleo.  We will find numerous connections to the many notable individuals now buried at Mount Auburn who shaped this area and the nation.

For more information on this book, as well as past and future books of the Mount Auburn Book Club, visit us on GoodReads.

Each month, the Mount Auburn Book Club meets to discuss a selected work related to one of Mount Auburn’s  many facets. Selections range from books on history, natural history, horticulture, art, architecture, preservation, and wildlife to books written by or about those now buried and commemorated here. The book club meets in Story Chapel on the second Thursday of each month. Coffee and tea are provided.

Funding for programs has been provided in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
