Marlborough: Meet Toto the Tornado Kitten at the Library« Back to Events
Toto, a feline survivor of the tornado that hit central and western Massachusetts in the summer of 2011, will visit the Marlborough Public Library Saturday, Nov. 23, at 2 p.m., with his owner, picture book author Jonathan Hall. Children of all ages can pet Toto and hear Hall read his book, Toto the Tornado Kitten, in the Bigelow Auditorium. Free tickets will be available at the Children’s Room circulation desk starting at 1 p.m. on the day of the event.
Jonathan Hall, a paramedic in Brimfield, first met Toto when the tiny, two-week-old kitten was brought to the Brimfield Fire Station by a tree worker, who found him while clearing debris after the devastating storm. After adopting Toto, Hall teamed up with Vermont artist Carol Ruzicka to write Toto the Tornado Kitten, which follows the kitten’s journey from the forest to his new home.
All proceeds from Hall’s book sales are donated to animal rescue groups like the Animal Rescue League of Boston. For more information on the event, call the Children’s Room at 508-624-6902 or visit www.marlboroughpubliclibrary.org. Marlborough Public Library is located at 35 West Main St.
