Welsh Book Club -
Our July selection for the Welsh Book Club will be In Search of Wales by H. V. Morton famous and much-loved travelogue of Wales. Singularly susceptible to Celtic romance and history, H. V. Morton goes in search of Wales, and finds equal delight in climbing Snowdon (inclement weather aside) and going down a coal mine. Bustling with intriguing local stories and characters, Morton's fascinating account reaches from the scenic grandeur of the north to the domestic beauty of the industrial south. In the Vale of Clwyd it rains "with grim enthusiasm," while at the Eisteddfod in Bangor, he is "slightly worried by the trousers of bard and druid, which are visible for a few inches below their gowns. Father Christmas has this same trouble with his trousers." Anecdotal, leisurely, full of character and event, insight, and opinion, this is travel writing of the very highest order. See you mid-summer! Grab some coffee & a treat. Enjoy wonderful books and lively book discussion. A reference copy is available at the Carnegie Public Library, but a dozen or more copies are available for purchase on Amazon.

What we're about

This meetup is run by the St. David's Society of Pittsburgh, a group dedicated to celebrating and preserving Welsh heritage in Southwestern Pennsylvania. We host several Welsh cultural events throughout the year including pub crawls, a book club, a Gymanfa Ganu (festival of song), and an annual St. David's Day lunch in March. We have a Welsh language class that meets weekly and we collaborate with other cultural groups in Pittsburgh through participation in local folk festivals and our Welsh Room in the Nationality Rooms of the Cathedral of Learning.
