The Worcester Public Library will present four readings and craft activities with Jason Lefebvre, award-winning author of Too Much Glue, on Saturday, October 24. In his exciting story, first-time author Lefebvre presents a rowdy tale about the disruptive forms that creativity can take.

The readings will be held at four of the Worcester Public Library locations. The first reading will be held at the Tatnuck Magnet Branch, located at 1083 Pleasant Street, at 9:15 a.m. The second reading will be held at the Goddard Branch, located at 14 Richards Street, at 10:30 a.m. The third reading will be at the Main Library, located at 3 Salem Square, at 12 p.m. The fourth and final reading will be held at the Roosevelt Branch, located at 1006 Grafton Street, at 2:45 p.m. These events are free and open to the public.

About the Book

Matty is no paste eater, but short of consuming it, he loves everything about glue, especially using it in enormous quantities. Although Matty’s teacher preaches moderation (“Glue raindrops, not puddles!”), Matty isn’t listening, and his parents are happy to encourage him.
