Mount Auburn Book Club: The Greater Journey
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, August 9: We will discuss The Greater Journey: Americans in Parisby David McCullough (2011). Oliver Wendell Holmes, Charles Sumner, Winslow Homer, and Margaret Fuller are just some of the Mount Auburn notables who appear in this book about Americans who spent time in France to achieve their creative goals.
Funding for programs has been provided in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
