Seuss-a-Thon comes to Charlotte Saturday

Do you love Dr. Seuss, do you love him? I do!
If you love Dr. Seuss, then this day's for you.

OK, I know, really cheesy. But if you're a fan of one of America's greatest children's authors, you'll want to head on Saturday to the Seuss-a-Thon at Black Forest Books and Toys, 1942 E. Seventh St.

Black Forest is teaming with UNC Charlotte's Children's Literature Program to hold this event, which features prominent Charlotte folks reading aloud their favorite Dr. Seuss books. It'll run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and include other Suess-related activities.

The event supports the National Education' Association's Read Across America campaign and celebrates the birthday on Friday of the late Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss.
