The Malden Historical Society is hosting a book release reception on Tuesday, June 23 at 7 p.m. in the Ryder Gallery of the Malden Public Library. The book is the second of a series on Malden history, compiled by Society Board members Ed Flaherty, Frank Russell, Barbara Tolstrup, and John Tramondozzi. It was published by Arcadia Publishing. The first Arcadia book was a photograph history of Malden, published in 2000 and has had several reprinting. The new book is a collection of old postcards selected from the personal collections of members. Both titles will be on sale at the library on June 23 and after the program.
