Urban Forest Initiative Treeweek Lorax at Farish Theater



FREE movie showing at the Central Library's Farish Theater

“First published in 1971 by Random House, The Lorax is a parable that promotes the conservation of natural resources and warns against the perils of overconsumption. It’s told from the perspective of a remorseful figure called the Once-ler, whose face never appears in the book. The Once-ler shares a cautionary tale about chopping down feather-like Truffula trees, which he uses to make all-purpose wonder garments called "Kneeds." Driven by greed, The Once-ler ignores the eponymous, pint-sized sage who "speaks for the trees,' until it’s too late and the Lorax’s world becomes a wasteland.” (Publishers Weekly Feb. 2012)
