What if all of Malden read the same book?
Malden Reads is pleased to offer a range of events and activities for all ages that give opportunities for community members to meet each other and engage with the themes of this year’s book selections. Stay tuned this month (January) as we begin to list the events and activities for our 2019 program
A Chinese New Year Opening Celebration
Saturday, January 26, 2019, 1:00pm-5:00pm, at Malden High School
In keeping with the spirit of the 2019 book selection, “The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane” by Lisa See, Malden Reads will kick off the season with a collaborative event — a Chinese New Year Celebration — held in conjunction with the Chinese Culture Connection. There will be information and social time, a line-up of live cultural performances, and a selection of presentations/discussions for smaller groups on themes and topics related to the book. Planned activities include hands-on calligraphy and tea tasting. Breakout sessions will include such topics as Asian-American stereotypes, traditional Chinese medicine, Chinese architecture, and more. The Chinese New Year Celebration at Malden High School has been a popular annual community event for many years. Come for the first time or as a returning guest — there will be a new twist with our Malden Reads presence. Please plan to join us!
