Mount Auburn Book Club: The Assistant by Bernard Malamud
Bernard Malamud’s second novel, The Assistant (1957), is the story of Morris Bober, a grocer in postwar Brooklyn, who wants better for himself and his family. Malamud is buried on Azalea 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 the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
