Mount Auburn Book Club: Her Fearful Symmetry

November 30, 2011

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.

  • Thursday, November 08: Her Fearful Symmetry, by Audrey Niffenegger (2009), takes place largely in Highgate Cemetery in London, a garden cemetery. We will follow two American sisters as they navigate a new locale, odd neighbors, and supernatural incidents.
