Malden Reads and Chinese Culture Connection team up for a Chinese New Year Celebration
The public is invited to join Malden Reads and the Chinese Culture Connection for a Chinese New Year Celebration at Malden High School on Saturday, January 26, from 1:00–5:00 p.m. In keeping with the spirit of the 2019 Malden Reads 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 the Malden Reads presence. A schedule of the event’s activities will soon be available on the Malden Reads website at maldenreads.org/events. Please plan to join us!
