Dr. Seuss Visits BYU Bookstore

PROVO- Over 50 years since its original publishing Dr. Seuss’s famous children’s book “Cat in the Hat” will be re-released to the public. To celebrate the re-releasing, Dr. Seuss chose to visit his alma mater, BYU, for a book signing. Seuss’s visit caused “Jimmer-like” excitement throughout the campus.

“We are so pleased to welcome the Doctor!” said Karen Tuchas, the head of bookstore public relations. “The last time we had a book signing Orson Scott Card punched a student for asking if he wrote Harry Potter. This has been less violent so far.”

BYU students had an even more positive reaction. Kayleene, a sophomore from Bountiful, said “I’ve read Cat in the Hat more times than I’ve read any other book! Well, not counting 1st Nephi. I can’t believe Dr. Seuss is here!!”

Kayleene wasn’t the only one excited. The bookstore sold out tickets to an exclusive lunch where Dr. Seuss held private readings of his unpublished works: “Horton Hears a Nazi”, “How the Grinch Filed for Unemployment”, and “Green Eggs and Salmonella”.

Dr. Seuss will be returning for a re-release of “The Lorax” on September 31, 2013 in the BYU Bookstore between 2 PM and 4 PM.
