Blount County's 1Read program is bringing students together one book at a time.

Middle school students across the county read Refugee by Alan Gratz, the story of three different children seeking refuge. WUOT's Hannah Martin spoke with literacy coach Terri Bradshaw about the initiative. She says that students learned that there's more that brings us together than divides us.
