In honor of Black History Month, the February book selection is To Free a Family: The Journey of Mary Walker(2012) by Sydney Nathans. This book tells the story of Mary Walker who escaped bondage and fled to the north. She is buried on Kalmia 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.
