Tomes & Tombs September Book ClubHistoric Congressional Cemetery Chapel 1801 E Street, Southeast, Washington
Tombs and Tomes is Congressional Cemetery's book club. We meet every other month in our historic Chapel (unless otherwise noted), and we discuss primarily non-fiction books. Our book selections have no rhyme and reason; however, our choices tend to stray towards the macabre, as is natural for a cemetery book club. Our very first meeting was in September 2013 and we chose to read Stiff, by Mary Roach (pictured here with Doug Graves, Congressional Cemetery's mascot and NOT a real skeleton!). It's free to join, and mostly free to attend. For each meeting, we simply ask that you bring either a $5 donation or a bit of food or wine to share with the group. Extra points for brownies! Interested in learning more? Read our January 2014 blog post about Tombs and Tomes, or request to join our Goodreads group. Still interested? Email Sarah for more info and to RSVP for a meeting.
