Dr. Seuss Night

We won’t serve green eggs and ham, but think of it as a family-friendly poetry slam!  Come dressed as your favorite character and win a prize, as our costume judges measure you up to size.  You might see Thing One or maybe Thing Two, and maybe we’ll end the evening with Horton Hears a Who!  We’ll have guests reading books and art projects galore, so come one and come all, to see what’s in store!

Friday, March 3, 6:00-7:30pm at the ARC, FREE!
