One Book Baltimore, now in its fifth year, is a collaboration among 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 peace and how to promote change in our community.

Furia by Yamile Saied Méndez

The recipient of the 2021 Pura Belpré Young Adult Author Medal and one of BuzzFeed's Must-Read YA Books of 2020, Furia is a powerful contemporary YA novel set in Argentina about a rising soccer star who must put everything on the line—even her blooming love story—to follow her dreams.

Beginning with the author’s visit to Baltimore and a kickoff event on November 10, the Pratt will launch a host of discussions and programming held across the city to spark conversations focused on peace and how to promote change in our community, as well as themes of identity, culture, and growth. The program will begin in November and extend through February, culminating in another visit from Yamile Saied Méndez and a student showcase.
