On Saturday, March 1st, the Mitchell College Education Department will host the 13th Annual Cat in the Hat Ball (snow date is Sunday, March 2nd).

The Dr. Seuss-themed event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Clarke and Weller Centers and features children’s games, crafts, music, and story-time readings with special guests.

This year’s event will feature a reading and book signing by children’s author, Sheila Murphy Adams and her father Edward Murphy who illustrates her books including “Beads, Bands and a Brass Ring”, “Louie Digs Up a Surprise”, “Puffy No Nose”, and “The Coolest Kids in School” aimed at younger readers about a school bully and a new boy in the class who wants to prove a person can be both cool and kind.

Guests will enjoy Ooblick, pizza, and cake all included in the price of admission. The event also includes the opportunity to purchase children’s books from Monte Cristo Bookshop.

Guests to the Ball are encouraged to wear fun hats, especially a stove pipe hat, like the one featured in Cat in the Hat.

Open to the general public, admission to the event is free with the donation of one or more new books per family, or $5 per family.  All books from the event will be donated to local schools and early childcare centers.
