The Great Wave: Gilded Age Misfits, Japanese Eccentrics, and the Opening of Old Japan by Christopher Benfey (2003) explores the cultural exchange between Japan and the United States in the period following the US Civil War. There are many intriguing connections to Boston’s elite, including Mount Auburn resident William Sturgis Bigelow.

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.
