Malden Reads Kickoff at the Library—Family Movie & Art Tour

Join us next Saturday, January 11, 2020  for the beginning of the day/night kickoff events celebrating Malden Reads 10th anniversary.

The day will begin here at the library with a 2 pm family movie, Abominable, showing in the Maccario. The event is free and open to all.

For the adults, at 2:30 pm, there will be a tour of the historic Converse Building and Art Galleries. Space is limited. Please call 781-324-0218 to reserve a spot.

Later in the evening, at the Markey Senior Center from 6-8 pm, the kickoff will continue with  live music, food samplings, community exhibit tables, readings and relevant presentations, and special activities such as the featured Traveling Poetry Emporium.

True Story Theater, an improvisational group will hold a special ticketed event with limited seating, will be held in the auditorium of the John & Christina Markey Senior Community Center. With very little prep time, and a few props, the actors of True Story Theater take stories from the audience around a common theme and act them out. The $10 tickets are limited so please purchase through Eventbrite.

political undertones. Mr. Arzaga’s exhibit offers a glimpse to urban landscapes and its people around the globe, from the
streets of La Paz, Bolivia to the markets of Jerusalem. This series of photos are an invitation to explore everyday activities in
different settings across the countries.

Kelly Hourigan, November Artist

Kelly is drawn toward vivid colors and printing on different mediums to draw out the vibrancy. Whether it is photographing the nostalgia of an amusement park, capturing the beauty of flowers in bloom or discovering interesting piles of brightly colored buckets at an antique show, she finds color and light in ordinary things we all take for granted.

All of Kelly’s pieces are available for sale and can be ordered in other sizes if needed.

Kelly’s exhibit will be on display the month of November.
