Hello Beautiful!

First, native Welshman and ...

First, native Welshman and University of Chicago Classics professor Nick Rudall reads Dylan Thomas's “A Child's Christmas in Wales.” Then we hear “Arara Yemonya,” a Kwanzaa song performed by the Women of the Calibashi, followed by a song in Ladino—the language of the Jews from Spain—presented by Richard Kaplan. John McCutcheon recounts “Christmas in the Trenches,” a remarkable story about a temporary cease-fire during World War I. And local writer Jeffrey Essmann reflects on holiday lights and the “overcharged” Christmas of his childhood.

“A Child's Christmas in Wales” was produced by special arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois.
