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.

Thursday, October 11: Squirrel Nut Brand, Baker Chocolate, and Schrafft’s all have ties to men now interred at Mount Auburn, and each is mentioned in Candy Freak: A Journey through the Chocolate Underbelly of America by Steve Almond (2004). We will explore one man’s obsession with candy and discuss our own weaknesses as well.

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