Students to celebrate 'Read Across America' project

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

As part of the nationwide celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday on March 1, United Way of the Lowcountry and The University of South Carolina Beaufort are partnering to spread the love of reading. 

From 2-5 p.m. on Friday, the library lawn at USCB's Hilton Head Gateway campus, Hwy 278 in Bluffton, will have tables, tents and enthusiastic readers celebrating the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. 

Local authors and USCB faculty members will read from their favorite children's books. Some will read in languages other than English. 

As part of the local Read Across America project, United Way of the Lowcountry and USCB are seeking favorite quotes from favorite books from Beaufort and Jasper County residents. The quotes will be featured in social media postings about Read Across America. To share, email Ann-Marie Adams at AAdams@uwlowcountry.org.
