Join us for a screening of this documentary on Theodor Geisel. Most people know that Dr. Seuss was the man behind the Cat and the Hat. But how many know that Yertle the Turtle was modeled after Hitler—or that Dr. Seuss created WWII political cartoons that denounced racism, isolationism and other issues of the day?
The film reveals how popular children’s author, Theodore Geisel advocated for social change teaching generations of children not only how to be better readers but better people.
Be sure to see the art exhibit, “All Things Seuss” featuring the private collection of local resident Louise Gens Wicarius offering a rare glimpse into a beloved American artist in the Library’s exhibit hall.
