Mom starts book drive to make diverse stories more accessible

As a kid, Erin Gentry loved nothing more than getting lost in the pages of a good book. She would sit still for hours and let her imagination wander. 

“So much would be going on around me, but if I was reading a book, it was like none of that mattered. I was able to just escape. We are in a different place when we read. I love that,” Gentry said. 

Even into adulthood, books have that same effect on her. She still loses track of time as she flips through a mystery novel, enjoying the suspense and excitement as she nears the end. 

Now, as a mom to a 1-year-old son, she can’t always read for hours as she loved to as a kid.
