Book Bus is driven by literacy


Book-loving Tampa, Fla., resident Jennifer Frances stopped at locations in Buffalo on Tuesday to read aloud to children and distribute free books to kids ranging in age from babies to teenagers.

"Bess the Book Bus" a literacy-themed volunteer project that Frances began in Florida 10 years ago, made its second stop in Western New York this week, after a first visit to the region last year.
