Birthday Party for Dr. Seuss at Cambrian Library


Dr. SeussEveryone is invited to celebrate the 110th birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, also known as Dr. Seuss, at Cambrian Branch Library on Monday, March 3, 2014, from 4:00 to 5:00 PM.

 

Interesting tidbits about Dr. Seuss (whose birthday is actually on March 2):

 

"If you want to pronounce the name the way his family did, say Zoice, not Soose. Seuss is a Bavarian name, and was his mother’s maiden name: Henrietta Seuss’s parents emigrated from Bavaria (part of modern-day Germany) in the nineteenth century."

"As a magazine cartoonist, he began signing his work under the mock-scholarly title of "Dr. Theophrastus Seuss" in 1927. He shortened that to "Dr. Seuss" in 1928. In acquiring his professional pseudonym, he also gained a new pronunciation. Most Americans pronounce the name Soose, and not Zoice. And that’s how Ted Geisel became Dr. Seuss." (Source: www.seussville.com)

 

The Seussical celebration at Cambrian Branch on March 3 includes a craft activity and, of course, birthday cake for everyone (while supplies last).

 

We hope that you can come and join us for this birthday party!
