The Newton Public Library will kick off its 2020 Youth Library Program with a performance by "The Circus Man," Jason D’Vaude, at 1:30 p.m. June 5 on the library’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/NewtonPublicLibraryKansas.


A "self-taught, one-man circus sensation," D’Vaude "will bring his comedic juggling, clowning and circus tricks to Newton for an online performance."


D’Vaude will return to the library’s Facebook page at 6:30 p.m. June 9 for a live question and answer session.


"He will talk about how he became a circus performer and mastered his many amazing skills. With an adult’s help, children can write questions and comments for D’Vaude."
