One Book Baltimore provides opportunities for Baltimore City 7th and 8th graders, their families, and community members to connect through literature by reading the same book. The program is a partnership between the Enoch Pratt Free Library, the T. Rowe Price Foundation, Baltimore City Schools, and other community partners. WBAL-TV 11 is the media sponsor. You can get your copy of Becoming Beatriz at the Pratt Library today.
