A Chinese New Year Opening Celebration
Saturday, January 26, 2019, 1:00pm-5:00pm, at Malden High School
In keeping with the spirit of the 2019 book selection, “The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane” by Lisa See, Malden Reads will kick off the season with a collaborative event — a Chinese New Year Celebration — held in conjunction with the Chinese Culture Connection. There will be information and social time, a line-up of live cultural performances, and a selection of presentations/discussions for smaller groups on themes and topics related to the book. Planned activities include hands-on calligraphy and tea tasting. Breakout sessions will include such topics as Asian-American stereotypes, traditional Chinese medicine, Chinese architecture, and more. The Chinese New Year Celebration at Malden High School has been a popular annual community event for many years. Come for the first time or as a returning guest — there will be a new twist with our Malden Reads presence. Please
plan to join us!
