morenews5-lg

It will be akin to a three-ring circus when the University Village Bookstore hosts its 7th annual Dr. Seuss Birthday Celebration, "Read Across the Village," from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 1. Events will take place in three locations along Monarch Way in Old Dominion's University Village: the bookstore, Gordon Art Galleries and Goode Theatre.

In addition to story-time readings for children at the bookstore, activities will include face painting, arts and crafts, a "Cat in the Hat" movie and free hats, balloons and birthday cake. The Cat in the Hat will visit all of the sites.

The ODU bookstore holds the event each year in celebration of the actual birthday of the creator of Dr. Seuss, Theodore Seuss Geisel, who would be 110 on March 2. Parents are invited to bring their children to this free event. Free parking is available in the North Garage on 45th Street.
