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, May 10: We will discuss the book that inspired the hit movie about fanatical birders, The Big Year: A Tale of Man, Nature and Fowl Obsession by Mark Obmascik (2004). Each May hundreds of birders descend on Mount Auburn to observe the spring migration. Some are casual birders and others are working on their life list; in this book, we will explore the world of those who are the most driven. 

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