Location
Geisel Library, Seuss Room

Wednesday, November 22

 Noon – 1:00pm

All ages. Free.

Investigate the American turkey’s surprising presence in European art. Learn more about the bird through turkey calling techniques. This noisy show at the UC San Diego Library has become a community tradition. Kids are welcome (and they’ll be reciting turkey-related riddles). Presented as an old-time radio show, this celebration is filled with music, sound-effects, stories and facts of interest.

Host and bandleader Scott Paulson, a UC San Diego alumnus, and Exhibits & Events Coordinator at the UC San Diego Library, has been lauded by the San Diego Union-Tribune for his entertaining shows: “an avant-garde vaudevillian, think Samuel Beckett meets John Cage.”  The Los Angeles Times relayed “Paulson’s brand of G-rated fun, a sort of modern day morphing of Captain Kangaroo and Spike Jones, is always lively and at times wonderfully chaotic.”

For more information about the event, please contact  Scott Paulson at (858) 822-5758 or spaulson@ucsd.edu.
