• About Maria Dasilva

    Maria is a fifteen year old sophomore and JV soccer player. She had previously learned about the Blue and Gold last year and decided to join this year to express her ideas in her work and to also advance in her writing skills. When she gets older, she would like to be a writer or journalist. Her favorite book is if i stay by Gayle Foreman and her favorite movie is Stuck in Love. While writing, her strongest part is the descriptive and creativeness while her weakest is creating poetry. When she gets older, she would like to run the Blue and Gold as the seniors do now. Her supporter and role model is her mom and her biggest pet peeve is when people try to be something they’re not. Maria’s favorite quote is “No one is worthless in this world, who lightens the burden of it to anyone else”.

    Hosted by Malden Reads, “Dessert Theatre” took place on November 10th, 2014. The event included a stage-reading of this year’s chosen Malden Reads book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, written by Rebecca Skloot.

The event was co-hosted by the Black Women’s Association.

    The play and book unveiled is based upon a true story of a woman whose unique cancerous cells were collected without her permission and are still being utilized in medical research today, although the story takes place in 1951. The original play was written by local poet, musician, songwriter and playwright Licia Sky. It was directed by Melissa Nussbaum Friedman, who also served as one of the readers. At this event, five copies of the selected book, Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore written by Robin Sloan, were raffled off to those attending.
