UNL's Literacy League is hosting an Oct. 12 book drive for children's and beginning readers. Book drive events begin at 4 p.m., in the Bailey Library in Andrews Hall. All books donated will be given to the Lincoln Literacy Council.

During the event, Susan Belasco, professor of English, will discuss her experiences producing the Bedford Anthology of American Literature. Free pizza will be served. The person who donates the most books will receive a gift card to Red Mango.

The book drive is free and open to the public. Book drop sites will also be available in the Andrews Hall, room 202 and the Nebraska Union.

The UNL Literacy League was previously named the Undergraduate English Organization.
