The Story of a Bad Boy (1870) is a semi-autobiographical account of the childhood of Thomas Bailey Aldrich. We will read and discuss this humorous tale of “not such a very bad, but a pretty bad boy.” Aldrich is buried on Grapevine 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 theĀ Massachusetts Cultural Council.
