A Child's Christmas in Wales
This Holiday season Hywel Taff Roberts will do a reading of Dylan Thomas’ “A Child's Christmas in Wales”.
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!
Betsy Neil on fiddle and Hannah Sheridan will be accompanying Roberts to sing Christmas Carols after the reading.
