Saturday at the Pratt

The Pratt Library has been an asset to Baltimore since the 1800s. One of the most respected Library Systems in the U.S. it continues in it's quest to make books, film, and glorious slices of American History available to every citizen in its community. This made the Pratt an obvious choice as Bouchercon 2008's main charity.

Bouchercon and the Pratt got together for another project as well. On Saturday, October 11th there will be a series of authors' panels at four of the Pratt's branches to introduce the community of Baltimore to the membership of Bouchercon.

Author Ann Cleeves will also be visiting the Pratt on Wed. October 8th. Check back for more details on that event.

We thank our members who are participating and we welcome the people of Baltimore to a little slice of Bouchercon- Charmed to Death.
