Malden Reads is proud to co-sponsor Malden’s 3rd annual Juneteenth event! Malden Community Organizing for Racial Equity has arranged for wonderful speakers & a proclamation read by City of Malden (Official)Mayor Gary Christenson, and the flag-raising is *on* (even though the evening event had to be canceled).

In light of recent news, events like Malden Juneteenth are more important than ever in our community showing solidarity and standing together. We are proud to have selected books like “The Hate U Give” and “The Story of Ruby Bridges.” We remember this statement from Angie Thomas, the author of “The Hate U Give”: “I look at books as being a form of activism because a lot of times they’ll show us a side of the world that we may not have known about.”
See you at Malden Juneteenth!
