1 Tonight, there will be a joint meeting of the Framingham City Council and the 8-member School Committee to elected one of 4 candidates to replace the late Karen Foran Dempsey on the School Committee in District 2. The meeting will start at 7 p.m. and air on the government channel as well as facebook.

2. The Framingham Historic District Commission meets tonight at 7 p.m. On Its agenda is a discussion to convert a former bank into a church. The Framingham Planning Board gave unanimous approval to the project last month.

3. Today is National Read Across America Day.

The day originally was created to coincide with the late Dr. Seuss, a popular children’s book author, but this year there has been a shift.

 The NEA and President Joseph Biden are leaving the Massachusetts author out.

In President Biden’s “Read Across America Day” presidential proclamation he said “for many Americans, the path to literacy begins with story time in their school classroom,” but unlike former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama, President Biden left out Dr. Seuss’s name in the proclamation.

Today, the Dr. Seuss Foundation announced that six books will no longer be printed, including To Think That I Found It on Mulberry Street.
