A Child’s Christmas in Wales, James Nave, Online

  • Date:

    Friday December 18th

  • Online

  • Join us for this delightful holiday gathering featuring James Navé’s evocative performance of A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas. A Child’s Christmas in Wales is a story of a boy growing up in Swansea, Wales, during the 1920s. This delightful little story will spark holiday memories, cavalcades of surprising imagery, and pleasant recollections of holidays you’ve enjoyed in the past. Afterward, I will lead a salon conversation where you’ll have an opportunity to share your favorite holiday story. Join us for this intimate and thoughtful holiday time.

    I’m looking forward to performing A Child’s Christmas in Wales at Kelly Morgan’‘s Creative Life Holiday gathering on Friday, December 18, 5 pm Pacific Time. I memorized this 24-minute prose poem in 1987 and have been performing it every Christmas since.

    The language in A Child’s Christmas in Wales will delight you with every sentence. The images in the slide show come from home movies my father shot when I was growing up in Western North Carolina during the 1950s. I always think of childhood in Western North Carolina when I perform Dylan Thomas’ lovely poem every year at this time.

    Join us on Zoom for this delightful evening of holiday stories and memories.
