Mount Auburn Book Club: Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife

January 12, 2016

From the acclaimed author who previously wrote on the subject of corpses, comes a book on what happens when we die.  Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach includes a mix of science, mystical and humor to explore this eternally debatable topic.

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.
