Waymarking - Dr Seuss' Sculpture Garden & First Lady, Kicks Off Reading Across America

Sculptor Lark Grey Dimond-Cates, who is also Geisel's step-daughter, created the bronze sculptures of Dr. Seuss and his most beloved characters for the Springfield Library & Museums Association. The $6.2 million project was funded through a variety of public and private sources, led by a generous gift from Mrs. Geisel. Read more at Waymarking.com
