Christmas in Wales

November 24, 2018

Hywel Taff Roberts will do a reading of “Child Christmas in Wales” Saturday, December 1 at 2.30p.m at the Winona Art Center, 228 East Fifth St, Winona, Minnesota


Sunday, December 9, 2p.m. at the Hamilton Gallery, 3112 West 28th Street, Minneapolis 55416

A rich jewel of a story, “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” features recollections of a Welsh Christmas in the 1940’s in a small seaside town on the rugged coast of west Wales. It is filled with “sheepish uncles and singing aunts, snow by the sky full, polar cats, sleek and long as jaguars.” Miss Prothero who “said the right things always,” and the terrifying ghost story that sends the boy hero’s scuttling home! Its the best Christmas story since Dickens!

Hywel Taff Roberts has been reading the story every year since 1975 wherever he has resided at Christmas. The first year was aboard the Brigantine schooner the Black Pearl in the harbor in Newport, Rhode Island. Mr Roberts has also read in libraries, an old barn, a tavern, the pulpit of a Congregational Church, and for the past twenty seven years, at the Art Center in Winona, Minnesota.

This story is intended for all listeners, not only young ones! Both events are free and open to the public.
