In a unique event featuring both carols and dramatic readings, the Jacob Sears Library in East Dennis will present "A Child's Christmas in Wales,” featuring Glyn Dowden as Dylan Thomas, the author of this beautiful prose work. Cape Cod’s beloved soprano Joan Kirchner and other top-notch singers will join the audience in singing traditional carols of the season at various points in the production. Director/Actress Judith Partelow and Music Director Maggie Bossi have combined their talents to create this wonderful event, which will take place in the beautifully restored main reading room of the historic library, included on the National Register of Historic Places. Free admission and refreshments. For reservations, please call the library at 508.385.8151.
