Mount Auburn Book Club: The Lusitania: An Epic Tragedy

March 3, 2015

This month marks the centennial of the torpedoing and sinking of the RMS Lusitania by a German U-boat.  The Lusitania: An Epic Tragedy by Diane Preston (2002) recounts this pivotal event.  One victim and one survivor are buried at Mount Auburn.

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.
