Malden Reads: One City, One Book

MaldenReadsWhat if all of Malden read the same book?

Malden Reads is a community reading program that seeks to answer that question. Organized by community groups, city leaders, and residents, in collaboration with the Malden Public Library and Malden Access TV, the program invites the community to read the same book and participate in a series of events related to the book’s themes. The goal is to encourage reading, promote the library and other city resources, and build community.

The opening celebration is Tuesday, Feb. 20 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Converse Memorial Building.

The book? “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” a science journalist who brought to light an important person and issue through her curiosity and reporting.

The Malden Reads launch kicks off Malden Access Television’s (MATV) citizen journalism project.
