This month marks the 10th anniversary of journalist Michael Kelly’s death while covering the Iraq War.  In remembrance we will read his highly praised book on another war he was embedded in, the Gulf War; Martyrs’ Day: Chronicle of a Small War (1993).

For more information on this book, as well as past and future books of the Mount Auburn Book Club, visit us on GoodReads.

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.
