Book Club: Smoke Gets in Your Eyes
Smoke Gets in Your Eyes & Other Lessons from the Crematory by Caitlin Doughty is an unusual memoir of working in a crematory in California. This funny but heartfelt book helps us to discuss and comes to terms with death.
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.
