Many local residents will remember the Polaroid Company based in Cambridge and the genius founder of the company, Edwin Land. Instant: The Story of Polaroid by Christopher Bonanos (2012) shares the history of the rise and fall of instant cameras. Land is buried on Aronia Path.

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 theĀ Massachusetts Cultural Council.
