Arts & Entertainment Curtis Sikes and Sheena Kohlmeyer to read at storytime

Author Curtis Sikes and illustrator Sheena Kohlmeyer will visit City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, July 26, at 11 a.m. to read their book, “The Heart of a Friend.” In this second book of “A Lion Tale” series, Leo is back with his father, King Lionel, and some new jungle animals.

Leo, now a little older, is learning what it means to be a lion that can patrol and hunt. As the story unfolds, there are new lessons to be learned about forgiveness and friendship. Leo also shows kindness and love towards his best monkey friend, Max, who’s being bullied and feeling unimportant. In the end, Leo and Max learn what it means to have the heart of a friend.

Though The Heart of a Friend is recommended for children 9 and up, younger kids can also enjoy the story with the help of a parent. To reserve copies of “The Heart of a Friend” or the first book, “The Heart of a King,” call City Lights Bookstore at (828)586-9499.
