Charles Russell Lowell, Jr. (buried in his family lot on Fountain Avenue) was mortally wounded at the Battle of Cedar Creek on October 19. To honor the anniversary of his death and the end of the Civil War Sesquicentennial, we will read The Nature of Sacrifice: A Biography of Charles Russell Lowell, Jr. 1835 – 1864 by Carol Bundy (2005).

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.
