First Book is a national organization started to give books to low-income kids across the country. After Hurricane Katrina, First Book set out to bring five million books to the Gulf Coast region.
At a recent event held at the New Orleans Public Library, hundreds of books were given to kids from Behrman Charter School. I attended the event and spoke with the chairman of First Book and some kids on the receiving end of First Book's generosity.
Each Street Talk report is typically 5 minutes long.
