For Read Across America Day, the Intrepid Museum is partnering with the Garden of Dreams Foundation (a nonprofit of the Madison Square Garden Company) and Random House Children’s Books (a division of Penguin Random House Publishing) to celebrate reading! The event will feature classic Dr. Seuss books and readings by New York Knicks alumnus John Starks, actor Justin Long and #1 New York Times bestselling author Chris Grabenstein.
This special event is celebrated annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday—to show children the joy of reading.
