Food-Filled Books

Books and food…seems they go hand-in-hand, no? Both are necessary for our survival (at least we think so). Both also incite passionate debates – butter or margarine? Pancakes or waffles? Carbs or low fat? Hunger Games or Twilight? Edward or Jacob? Bronte or Austen? Fitzgerald or Hemingway?

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

March 2nd is Dr. Seuss‘ birthday! How are you celebrating?

You can read of his wonderfully rhyming, tongue trippingly good books, watch one of the many funny movie adaptations, or do both by having a Dr. Seuss-themed party!

Be sure to take a look at the calendar of events or give your local library a call to see if they’re throwing a Seuss party!

Maybe you just want to find out about the real man behind Dr. Seuss? Try a biography:
