In remembrance of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963, we will read A Thousand Days: John F. Kennedy in the White House (1965) by Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. Schlesinger, who is buried at Mount Auburn, served as Special Assistant to the President and won both the Pulitzer Prize for Biography and the National Book Award in Biography for this insider look at the Kennedy administration.

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.
