A Child’s Christmas in Wales at library

On Sunday, Dec. 8, at 2 p.m., Milford Library, 57 New Haven Avenue, welcomes Colin Lane and Rebecca Zaretzky, performing Dylan Thomas’ masterpiece, A Child’s Christmas in Wales. This tale takes the audience back to Wales at the beginning of the 20th century and views the holiday scenes through a child’s eyes. It is funny, warm, and nostalgic, an announcement said.
