Media Advisory — Book in Every Home Campaign

Southern Illinois University Carbondale will kick off its annual Book in Every Home campaign at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23, at its Carbondale Head Start center, located at 1900 N. Illinois Ave. (U.S. Highway 51 north), just north of the Carbondale Industrial Park. Erika Lowery, wife of men's basketball coach Chris Lowery, is again chairing this year's book drive. Youngsters enrolled in SIUC's seven Head Start centers in Jackson and Williamson counties are the beneficiaries of the effort.

Head Start pupils will be in attendance, and following opening remarks, Mrs. Lowery will read a story to the children. Reporters and photographers are welcome to cover the event.
