Using characters, letters and events from history, Jane Goodrich’s first novel, The House at Lobster Cove (2017), is part family saga and part love story.  The protagonist, George Nixon Black, is buried at Mount Auburn on Eagle Avenue.  

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 the Front Office Conference Room on the second Thursday of each month. Coffee and tea are provided. Free.
