One Book Baltimore 2021 Kickoff Event!

One Book Baltimore is a collaboration between Enoch Pratt Free Library,  T. Rowe Price, and Baltimore City Public schools and several local organizations to provide opportunities for Baltimore City 7th and 8th graders, their families, and community members to connect through literature by reading the same book. Discussions and programming will be held across the city this fall to spark conversations focused on resilience and how to promote change in our community.

Join us as we kick off our 4th year of One Book Baltimore as WBAL's Mindy Basara is in conversation with Tami Charles! This year's selection is Becoming Beatriz by Tami Charles! 

Tami Charles is a former teacher, wannabe chef, proficient taker of naps and the New York TIme Bestselling author of All Because You Matter, and numerous books for children and young adults. Her middle grade debut, Like Vanessa, earned Top 10 spots on the Indies Introduce and Spring Kids' Next lists, three starred reviews, and a Junior Library Guild selection. Her YA novel-in-verse, Muted, and lyrical picture book, My Day with the Panye are her latest new books. When Tami isnt writing, she can be found presenting at schools both statewide and abroad.

This event will be livestreamed to the library's Facebook page and Youtube Channel!
