Mount Auburn Book Club: Will My Cat Eat my Eyeballs by Caitlin Doughty
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 the Front Office Conference Room on the second Thursday of each month. Coffee and tea are provided. Free.
In Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? (2019), Caitlin Doughty blends her mortician’s knowledge of the body and the intriguing history behind common misconceptions about corpses to offer factual, hilarious, and candid answers to thirty-five distinctive questions posed by her youngest fans.
