Buckmaster: Tucson literacy program still seeks volunteers

Sarah Garrecht Gassen of the Arizona Daily Star filled in for the vacationing Bill Buckmaster on a show featuring an in-depth conversation on poverty and illiteracy in Southern Arizona with Tamara McKinney, Literacy Connects Reading Seed program director, and Bobbie Jo Buel, editor of the Star. Then, we talked with Penelope Jacks of the Children's Action Alliance as well as Maureen O'Nell, CEO of the Humane Society of Southern Arizona.
