This month’s selection is Bernard Malamud’s National Book Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Fixer (1966). It is the story of a Jewish handyman who is unjustly imprisoned for murder in anti-Semitic Russia. Malamud is interred with his wife above Willow Pond.
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.
