Mount Auburn Book Club: The Bicycle Runner by G. Franco Romagnoli
We will discuss The Bicycle Runner: A Memoir of Love, Loyalty and the Italian Resistance (2009) by G. Franco Romagnoli. It is a coming of age story of growing up in fascist Italy. Romagnoli has a cenotaph on Azalea Wall.
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.
