Add this to our list of weekend activities ...
Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh's North Hills will host a visit from the young and talented dancers from the Raleigh Dance Theatre, who are gearing up for the annual Storybook Tales performance, featuring a Fancy Nancy tale. They'll be there at 10 a.m., Saturday.
And, at 2 p.m., Saturday, kids can meet the popular character Bad Kitty (from Nick Bruel's series). Bruel won't be there. But there will be a storytime featuring "Bad Kitty: Scaredy-Cat" and a chance for visits and photos with Bad Kitty. The character also will have a special stamp for "signing" books.
Both programs are free. They are best for preschoolers and up.
