'Grinch' saga told in Latin—and English

'Grinch' classic to get classical twist
"How the Grinch Stole Christmas" ... in Latin?
Don't worry, it will be read in English, too, at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6, at The Bull's Head Bookshop at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The shop's annual bilingual reading of the Dr. Seuss classic will be free and open to the public. Tom Stumpf, professor emeritus of English and comparative literature, will read boomingly in English, and UNC Student Stores' George Morgan will read soothingly in Latin.
"This event is a favorite for young, old and in-between, with free cookies and hot chocolate for all," said the Bull's Head's Kyle McKay. "Show up early to get a good seat; there have been large crowds in the past."
The Bull's Head Bookshop is inside the UNC Student Stores off South Road. Call (919) 962-5060 or visit the Facebook event page at for more information.
