Glenside Library to host award-winning children's author Jennifer Torres

On Wednesday, March 15, Glenside Library in Glendale Heights is welcoming Jennifer Torres, the award-winning author of "Stef Soto," "Taco Queen," "The Do-Over," "Catalina Incognito," "Lola Out Loud," and other books for young readers.

Families will be able to purchase a book, enter our book drawing, and get an autograph.

Torres writes stories about home, friendship, and unexpected courage inspired by her Mexican-American heritage. Jennifer started her career as a newspaper reporter, and even though she writes fiction now, she hopes her stories still have some truth in them. She lives with her family in Southern California.

"It's exciting to bring such an accomplished author to our community," explains Public Services Manager Jill Martorano. "We strive for the events that we offer to benefit the communities we serve."

The Autor Meet & Greet will begin at 3:30 p.m. at the library, 25 E Fullerton Ave. in Glendale Heights.

The event is free and open to the public, and registration is not required. For more information, visit or call (630) 260-1550.
