Oh, the Places You Should Go

If you have brains in your head and you have feet in your shoes, you can steer yourself in the direction we choose. So grab your wallets, tie your shoes, and comb your hair…and on March 3 head to White Plains for the Dr. Seuss Bookfair.

Horton Hears a Who huge book fair is coming up on March 3 to celebrate its maker, Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Join Pace’s Pi Lambda Theta in raising money for the Center for Literacy Enrichment at the Barnes and Noble Bookfair!

Stop by the Barnes and Noble City Center in White Plains from 1:00 p.m. to  5:00 p.m. for a Dr. Seuss birthday extravaganza. There will be storytime and face-painting and volunteers are needed. E-mail Pace student Lauren Zucconi at Lauren.Zucconi@gmail.com if you’re interested in helping out. The Pace Glee Club will be performing from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and the Cat in the Hat will be there to pose for some Facebook profile pics!

Most importantly, anyone who mentions the book fair on March 3 at checkout, will have some of their proceeds go towards The Center for Literacy Enrichment, which helps students from all over Westchester County with reading, writing, and comprehension. Can’t attend the bookfair? Visit BN.COM/bookfairs to support the Center online from March 3 until March 8 by entering Bookfair ID 10688695 at checkout.
