Mount Auburn Book Club: Mary Baker Eddy
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, March 8: We will mark Women’s History month with a biography of one of Mount Auburn’s most visited residents, Mary Baker Eddy. The often controversial but powerful and independent woman who discovered Christian Science is explored at great depth in Mary Baker Eddy by Gillian Gill (1998). Mary Baker Eddy is buried on Halcyon Avenue.
Funding for programs has been provided in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
