Geisel Library puts new spin on Thanksgiving


UCSD’s Geisel Library gave new meaning to turkey last week.

From turkey calling to songs about the traditional Thanksgiving bird, the library had a decidedly different sound on Wednesday.

A live musical show led by Scott Paulson, outreach coordinator for UCSD’s Arts Library and the creator of The Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra, kicked off the Wednesday celebration.

Wednesday’s event was presented in the style of old-time radio shows. Paulson and his orchestra, including student Matt Swagler who played his small drum set using a turkey feather, performed classic holiday songs, like “Autumn Leaves.”
