A.
Gluing it back on your own is filled with bad possibilities such as incorrect placement, toxic home cements, and swallowing the crown.  There are several options.  If you have a local dental school, a hospital-based program, or a free dental clinic in the area, they can help you.  I would suggest calling the local dental society for advice on what to do.
