KU to Host Discussion of The Lorax by Dr. Suess

March 19, 2014

KUTZTOWN, Pa. - Kutztown University's Rohrbach Library, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and College of Education are co-sponsoring a discussion of "The Lorax," at noon, on Tuesday, March 25 in McFarland Student Union room 312. 

Faculty members, students, staff and community members are invited to reexamine this popular children's book and discuss the environmental, scientific and business themes embedded within the story. The discussion will be led by KU's very own self-described Seuss nerd, Dr. Carol Watson, professor of elementary education. 

Aramark will provide themed food for this event, including 'Truffula Tree' cupcakes and other snacks. 

This is the second in a series of four events centered on discussing the works of Theodor Suess Geisel. At the first event, audience members uncovered the historical and moral messages behind the books, discussed the thought processes of the writer and analyzed how Suess' writings still affect us today.  The third event in the series will focus on Geisel as a writer.
