Mitchell College Cat in the Hat Ball is next week

New London - On Feb. 25, the Mitchell College Education Department and Early Childhood Education Club will host the 11th Annual Cat-in-the-Hat Ball.

The Dr. Seuss-themed event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Weller and Clarke centers and features children's games, music and storytime readings with special guests.

The event will feature a reading by children's author Tish Rabe at 11 a.m. in the Clarke Center. Rabe has written more than 90 children's books and scripts for children's television series including "Clifford," "Clifford's Puppy Days" and "I Spy!" In 1996 she became the author of a new line of nonfiction Cat in the Hat science books, The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library. Guests are encouraged to wear fun hats, especially a stovepipe hat, like the one featured in "Cat in the Hat." Admission is free with the donation of one or more books per family, or $5 per family. All books from the event will be donated to local schools and early child care centers. For more information, contact, call (860) 701-5015 or visit
