Sunset, Storytelling and Stargazing on Waitt’s Mount

Ward 4 City Councillor Ryan O’Malley, in collaboration with Malden Reads, announces the third annual “Sunset, Storytelling and Stargazing on Waitt’s Mount” to be held Saturday, May 19, weather permitting.

The community is invited to the top of Waitt’s Mount Park in Malden (off Leonard Street) to watch the sunset, hear storytelling and gaze at the stars with the help of the North Shore Amateur Astronomy Club (NSAAC), the Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston, and #popscope.

Professional children’s storyteller Sharon Kennedy will begin telling stories at 7:30. Parents with young children may only want to stay for the storytelling portion, but are welcome to sta...y longer. At 8:00, there will be “Stories Only You Can Tell,” featuring adults telling stories of personal experience, under the direction of local author and spoken word artist CD Collins. Stargazing will begin after twilight. Several telescopes will be set up for viewing, with the club astronomers serving as guides to the night sky.

This year’s book selection, “The Hate U Give” by Angie Thomas, like so many great books, helps us to “step inside the shoes” of another person. Come celebrate the power of connection and community. Enjoy a night with fellow community members under the stars at the top of Malden’s highest point!

In case of inclement weather (or skies that are too cloudy for viewing), an alternative date will be announced. Stay tuned for more details about parking, what to bring and what to expect. Details will be posted on the Malden Reads website at maldenreads.org.

This event is sponsored in part by a grant from the Malden Cultural Council, a local agency, funded through the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency
