SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- The University of California San Diego is getting ready to celebrate Dr. Suess.

Friday, March 1, the university will host a special birthday party for the author, which coincides with National Read Across America Day.

The celebration will include cake, carnival games, a read-a-thon, giant inflatable Suess characters and, of course, a selfie station.

The event will also include a reading from “Happy Birthday to You!” in honor of the classic book's 60th anniversary.

The event is scheduled to take place Friday at 11:45 in front of the Geisel Library.

“We greatly treasure our Dr. Seuss Collection; it adds a creative dimension to the wealth of other papers and archives housed in Special Collections & Archives,” said UC San Diego’s Audrey Geisel University Librarian Erik Mitchell.
