Hats Off to Dr. Seuss! Campaign Launches In New York City With The Debut Of Dr. Seuss's Personal Hat Collection, A Partnership With Jeff Gordon Children's Foundation, And A Guinness World Records® Attempt
Yearlong celebration to include nationwide tour of Dr. Seuss's never-before-seen personal hat collection
NEW YORK, Feb. 4, 2013 -- Random House Children's Books and Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced today the launch of the Hats Off to Dr. Seuss! (http://www.HatsOffDrSeuss.com) campaign at the famed 42nd Street branch of the New York Public Library in New York City. Inspired by the 75th anniversary of The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins (Anniversary Edition on sale January 22, 2013), the yearlong celebration salutes the breadth of Dr. Seuss's work, not only the remarkable library of children's books he created, but also the span of his incredible career and legacy as a man who wore many hats: as an ad man, a political cartoonist, filmmaker, and a fine artist, to name a few.
