UCSD Libraries Plan Party for Dr. Seuss’ Birthday

    Campus community members and Dr. Seuss fans have been
    invited to the celebration of the late Theodor Seuss Geisel’s 104th
    birthday. The event will be held on
    March 3 at 11:50 a.m. on Library
    Walk, where a giant inflatable “Cat in the Hat” will mark the site.

    Audrey Geisel, the beloved author’s widow, will be present
    to cut the first pieces of cake. She
    will be joined by Chancellor Marye Anne Fox and Audrey Geisel University
    Librarian Brian E.C. Schottlaender in greeting attendees. Free punch and about 2,000 slices of cake
    will be served to honor Dr. Seuss.

    Matthew Swagler, an undergraduate from Sixth
    College
    , has composed a musical
    piece commissioned by the UCSD Arts Library and University Carillonneur Scott
    Paulson to be played on the Geisel Library chimes.

    The Teeny Tiny Pit Orchestra led by Paulson will also be
    performing songs from “The Cat in the Hat Songbook.”
