Mount Auburn Book Club: March
Geraldine Brooks loosely based two characters in her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, March (2005), on writings by or about Chaplain Arthur Buckminster Fuller and escaped slave Harriet Jacobs, both residents of Mount Auburn.
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.
