Mount Auburn Book Club: The Proper Bostonians

January 12, 2016

The Proper Bostonians by Cleveland Amory is a satirical look at the upper crust of Boston Society.  The book is filled with anecdotes about the Cabots, Appletons and other prominent Boston families now interred at Mount Auburn Cemetery.

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.
