Join us on Wednesday, March 19 at 6:00-8:45pm in the Maccario Room for the Malden Public Library’s second Malden Reads film screening. We will be showing director Lee Daniels’ film starring Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey. As Cecil Gaines serves eight presidents during his tenure as a butler at the White House, the civil rights movement, Vietnam, and other major events affect this man’s life, family, and American society. The movie is based on the true story of Eugene Allen.
The New York Times calls this movie “a brilliantly truthful film.”
A discussion of this year’s Malden Reads book selection, “The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks” will follow the movie. This film is free and open to the public and is accessible. Refreshments will be provided. Please call us at 781-324-0218 for more information.
