The Malden Historical Society invites everyone to attend a brief talk and book signing by Malden author Inna Babitskaya on Tuesday, February 7 at 7:00 p.m. in the Maccario Room of the Malden Public Library. Babitskaya will discuss her most recent book, “Time of Converse,” and will have copies available for purchase. The product of extensive historical research, this nonfiction work explores the lives of Elisha Slade Converse, his wife Mary Diana Converse, members of their family and their impact on Malden. Local residents may know a few things about the Converses – now they can learn much more about the people who became Malden’s most prominent family in the latter half of the nineteenth century.
Babitskaya has also written other books on Malden subjects: “Fellsmere Park: Emerald of Malden” and “From Maldon to Malden.”
The Malden Historical Society is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization that is always looking for new members. Anyone with an interest in history who wants to learn more about the Malden Historical Society can attend one of its meetings or visit www.maldenhistoricalsociety.org.
