‘Nobody Hugs a Cactus’ is N2N’s featured book

Reading with Friends at Neighbor to Neighbor will return in February as a Facebook Live event at 10 a.m. Feb. 12.

This month’s book will be “Nobody Hugs a Cactus” by Carter Goodrich.

Goodrich, the celebrated artist and lead character designer for Brave, Ratatouille, and Despicable Me, shows that sometimes, even the prickliest people — or the crankiest cacti — need a little love.

Marian Condray will be the guest reader for this Facebook Live virtual event. Story time will begin at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 12.

Instead of coming to Neighbor to Neighbor as usual, just go to the Neighbor to Neighbor Facebook page to tune in for the story. www.facebook.com/N2NConcordia The video will stay on the Facebook page after the reading for anyone to enjoy later in case they can’t make it online at 10 a.m.

Sister Missy Ljungdahl, director of Neighbor to Neighbor, said the first 25 children to pre-register will be able to pick up a copy of the book ahead of time (one per family) so they can follow along at home.

The story times for children 3 to 5 years old are on the second Fridays of the month and all begin at 10 a.m. To register for the book, call Neighbor to Neighbor at 785/262-4215 or email neighbortoneighbor@csjkansas.org.

The monthly program has been a part of Neighbor to Neighbor’s regular offerings since September 2012. Neighbor to Neighbor is located at 103 E. 6th St. in downtown Concordia.
