Event Description

Dr. Seuss is remembered for coaxing children into literacy with such whimsical creatures as The Cat in the Hat, Star-bellied Sneetches and Tweetle Beetles. But, he was also challenging the rest of us to wake up to social injustice. In Seuss’ words, “Nonsense wakes up the brain cells. If you can see things out of whack, then you can see how things can be in whack!”

Presented by Dick and Charline Watts, who have been interpreting the work of Dr. Seuss in talks and classes for decades, most recently at the Chautauqua Institution in 2017.
