Ludacris is teaming up with global bookstore Better World Books and teen not-for-profit to launch the “Epic Book Drive ”empowering young people to run community book drives with an aim to re-stock libraries in New Orleans’ Recovery School District.

Better World Books will provide free shipping to all groups organizing drives and will schedule a pick-up for any group that collects over 150 full cartons of books.

The initiative launches with a new Public Service Announcement from Luda where he invites viewers into his library to talk about the need for universal access to books.

The “Fast Five” film star challenges teens around the country to step up and collect books for the students in the New Orleans’ Recovery School District.

Speaking on his new ties to the book drive initiative, Luda released a statement saying,

“I am proud to be a spokesperson for this initiative as it’s in line with my dedication to empowering young people. The campaign is giving something as simple as a book to a student in a much needed area like the Recovery District so they can have the opportunity to read, communicate and be inspired.

Sharing in this way will have an incredible impact on the confidence and abilities of the next generation of leaders and I’m excited to be leading the charge.”
