Roadside memorials, green burials, and the history of embalming are just some of the topics explored by Kate Sweeney, NPR producer and two time Associated Press award winner, in her book American Afterlife: Encounters in the Customs of Mourning (2014).

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.
