The “Malden Eats” dinner celebration heads to Tornado Restaurant & Lounge (2 Florence St.), a fairly new Malden restaurant serving “Asian-inspired tapas,” on Tuesday, April 8 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20. Call 781-388-3988 and reference the “Malden Reads” event. Two of the co-owners, Shanie Leung and Jenny Le, met at Malden High more than a decade ago. The duo saved their pennies from after-school jobs to open up their dream restaurant. And, yes, the name was inspired by Malden High’s “Golden Tornadoes” mascot. Sounds like a perfect storm.

Malden Eats, in collaboration with Malden Reads, is excited to announce the return of the Malden Eats Community Dinner series. We invite you to share a convivial meal, at the same time exploring themes related this year’s Malden Reads selection, “Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore” by Robin Sloan.

Malden Reads: One City, One Book
What 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.
