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!
We encourage you to use this website as our electronic meeting space, as we curl up to a good book and then meet our neighbors, young and old (in person) to share what we read!
"The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" by Sherman Alexie has been chosen as the feature selection for Malden Reads 2013.
