Dr. Suess museum agrees to change racist mural
A Massachusetts museum dedicated to Dr. Seuss says it will replace a mural featuring a Chinese character from one of his books after three authors said they would boycott an event due to the ``jarring racial stereotype.''
The mural features illustrations from the author's first children's book, ``And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street.''
The museum, which is located the author's hometown of Springfield, said Thursday that it will be replaced by images from later books.
Three children's authors declined an invitation to the museum's inaugural Children's Literature Festival, which was set for Oct. 14 before being cancelled.
After the museum offered to take down the mural, they said they would attend, but the museum has not said if the festival is back on.
Larry, Tom McConnell, Betty Lou Souter, and the gang announce this year's totals and hand out a big thank you.
