Doctor Seuss and Read Across America Day!

Dahlonega’s open mic is happening Wednesday, March 1st, starting at 7pm and going until 9pm in Starbucks, and we have two themes this time: Doctor Seuss and Read Across America Day. What day is that, you might ask? It is a day for celebrating the life and works of Dr. Seuss, and for helping to spread the joy of reading. Here is the official explanation from

“NEA’s Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss. NEA’s Read Across America also provides NEA members, parents, caregivers, and children the resources and activities they need to keep reading on the calendar 365 days a year.”
