  Local Author to Speak on NEW Book, "The Time of Converse" February 7, 2023 at 7 PM

The Malden Historical Society invites everyone to attend a brief talk and book signing by local author Inna Babitskaya on Tuesday February 7 at 7:00 pm 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.


Get ready for a fun and interesting evening. The Annual Show & Tell meeting is the time you get to see some of the new additions to the Society's collection from the past year. The best part is that you can also bring that strange object you found in the attic or grand  dad left behind and see if the membership can give you some idea as to what it is or for what it was used. Bring in that old picture or article about local history to share with your fellow members. Light refreshments will follow.

The Waiting is Almost Over!
