Mount Auburn Book Club: Eden on the Charles: The Making of Boston
Eden on the Charles: The Making of Boston by Michael Rawson explores the topics of providing drinking water to residents, establishing a network of parks and greenways and other aspects of city life that we now take for granted in Boston. Many of the people involved with these grand initiatives are buried at Mount Auburn.
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 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.
