As an art director in the 1970s, Cathy Goldsmith worked with Dr. Seuss. She tells NPR’s Lauren Migaki how the writer would come into the office to introduce his new books:
He would gather everybody in a conference room. And first he would read the words to you aloud, and then he would show you the pictures. … It was fabulous ‘cause you would meet that book — not exactly the way a reader would meet it because it hadn’t all been pulled together yet — but you had that sense of discovery.
Though Seuss died in 1991, a new collection of his lesser-known work comes out Tuesday. It’s called Horton and the Kwuggerbug and More Lost Stories.
