A Child’s Christmas in Wales and The Gift of the Magi with Alan Sklar
7:00 pm -
Alan Sklar will be narrating “A Child’s Chistmas in Wales” by Dylan Thomas and “The Gift of The Magi” by O. Henry, two favorite holiday tales to be enjoyed by the entire family.
“A Child’s Christmas in Wales” is a popular Christmas tale told from the viewpoint of a young boy, portraying a nostalgic and simpler time, and short story “The Gift of the Magi,” first published in 1905, features a young husband and wife and how they deal with the challenge of buying secret Christmas gifts for each other with very little money.
