Book reading and signing
When a worm meets a special worm and they fall in love, you know what happens next:
They get married!
But their friends want to know – who will be wearing the dress? And who will wear the tux?
The answer is: it doesn’t really matter.
Because Worm loves Worm.
This “irresistible” picture book is a celebration of love in all its splendid forms.

J.J. Austrian is a graduate of Hamline University’s Master of Fine Arts Program in Creative Writing for Children and Young Adults. He lives in Minnesota with his family.

The New York Times review:
” J. J. Austrian and Mike ­Curato’s Worm Loves Worm, in which two worms of the hermaphroditic variety fall in love, brilliantly explores the idea of love between two beings, regardless of gender (or species) and despite societal ­pressures. Curato’s spare but sure silhouetted images and Austrian’s straightforward text are a perfect match to deliver the simple story of two characters who just want to declare their love and commit to each other.”
