What if all of MALDEN READS the same book?

One City, One Book

Malden Reads mulls book selection for 2021

Earlier this summer, as the Malden Reads steering committee began its book selection process for 2021, it faced a season and mood in the community and country very different from its previous ten years. On top of the COVID-19 pandemic, the country has been wracked with a coming to terms of 400 years of systemic racism, sparked by the murder of George Floyd, and brought to life by protestors from coast to coast.

These important and ongoing events informed the discussions of this year’s books. Once the book is selected, Malden Reads will invite the community of Malden to read the book and participate in a series of events related to the book’s themes.

Storytelling Workshop

What is your story? Where do you come from?

“Where are you from?” is a question that is often asked and usually replied to with a geographic location. Yet we are so much more than a place on a map. We are from types of food, of people and customs. We are from habits and feelings and smells and sounds. We are from places we’ve been to and challenges we’ve overcome. These influences are just as much “where we are from” and what makes us who we are as the country or region or city of our birth.
