Students from the two schools got to read together as part of the day.

Gretchen Blake, BookEnds director of programs, says “It’s about kids helping kids. It’s really unique in that students are doing all of the work. The kids in Beverly Hills are surrounded by books. We plant the seed in their head that there are students out there that don’t have as many, and would you like to do something about it?”
