Winter Solstice

This one-hour program will share cultural mysteries and stories about this darkest time of the year, including the Jewish holiday of Hannukah, Roman Saturnalia and the ancient Persian festival of Yalda. Lucky audience members will have an opportunity to have their fortune foretold by the writings of the esteemed Persian poet, Hafiz. The program concludes with a complete reading of Dylan Thomas’ mid-20th-century masterpiece, “A Child’s Christmas in Wales”.

Join us for this free event, a true holiday treat.
