What if all of Malden read the same book?

What will Malden read in 2019?

Just as the Malden Reads 2018 program is winding down, the book selection process for Malden Reads 2019 is gearing up! The Malden Reads committee welcomes YOUR help in selecting the next book for Malden Reads. You can suggest a book and/or become part of the Malden Reads Book Selection Committee.

To make a book suggestion for Malden Reads 2019, email Include the title of the book, the author, and why you think this selection is a good one for the Malden community. The book should be available in paperback and must NOT be part of a series. The Malden Reads committee chooses books that are well-written, are reasonably accessible (in terms of length and reading level), appeal to a wide cross section of the population, and have relevant themes that can be explored through a diverse range of programming.

If you are interested in joining the Malden Reads Book Selection Committee, send an email to or call Anne at 781-321-6400. Voting members of this committee must commit to several meetings during the summer, skim reading several books as we whittle down the choices and reading the final 2-3 selections. Members who represent cultural populations, age groups, or interest groups are invited to join us either as voting committee members (with commitment as described) or as non-voting members with a representative voice. Non-voting members are not required to attend all meetings or read the same number of books as voting members.

We welcome the voices of all community members in this process. Send us your suggestions or get involved on the selection committee!
