atMalden's highest point. Mal-
den Reads will hold the second
annual event of “Sunset, Story-
telling and Stargazing on Waitt’s
Mount” on Saturday, April 29,

event is co-sponsored by Ward 4
City Councillor Ryan O’Malley.
The community is invited to the
top of Waitt’s Mount Park in Mal-

This year’s book selection, “A
Man Called Ove” by Fredrik Back-
man, celebrates the power of
community. Let’s get to knowour

Expanding on the theme of the importance of neigh-
bors for this year's Malden Reads book selection, local
artists Greg Cook and Kari Percival led a Crafts Work-
shop for kids at the Malden Public Library. The theme
was "Thank You Nature Neighbors" and children drew
images of their local nature friends and wrote reasons
they were grateful to squirrels, trees, flowers and so
forth. Their creations are on display in the window of
MATV, Malden's Media Center, at 145 Pleasant Street.
