Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!


March 02, 2000|By Tricia Eller

Read Across America celebrations today mark what would have been Dr. Seuss' 96th birthday with everything from stories to birthday bashes.

At Barnes & Noble in Bel Air, balloons, cake and giveaways will set a festive backdrop for readings of Dr. Seuss titles from 4: 30 p.m. to 7: 30 p.m. (620 Marketplace Drive, 410-638-7023). Among the selections are the just-printed version of the 1951 cartoon "Gerald McBoing Boing" and some of the classics, including "The Cat in the Hat" and "Green Eggs and Ham."

In Baltimore, the Walbrook Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library will have an eight-hour "Seuss on the Loose" marathon beginning at noon. Readings on the hour pay tribute to Dr. Seuss, while exercising the imaginations of youngsters. (3203 W. North Ave., 410-396-0935)
