In the spirit of National Poetry Month, we will read the epic poem Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1847). The poem follows a woman in search of her lost love whom she was separated from during the Expulsion of the Acadians. Longfellow is buried on Indian Ridge Path.
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.
