California Pizza Kitchen in Santa Monica has partnered with children’s book author Megan Worthy and her daughter, Bronte Henfling, to organize a book drive to support local nonprofit Upward Bound House, which provides transitional housing for homeless families.

People are being encouraged to bring books to the CPK on Wilshire Boulevard in Downtown Santa Monica from now until Nov. 21. All books collected during the drive will be given to Upward Bound House in a wrap party in December.

Guests who donate a book will receive a free “small plate” food item with a $15 purchase. For more information, call (310) 738-1181 or visit www.bronteandfrank.com.
