Local & National News for Wales

BEFORE becoming a full-time author, T. Llew Jones was a primary school
teacher in Ceredigion for 35 years, and died in 2009. He published over
50 books for adults and children. Some of them were adapted for
television and were shown around the world.

Councillor Catrin M S Davies, Cabinet Member with responsibility for
Library Services, said:

“Every year, a number of schools across the county celebrate T. Llew Jones on 11 October, and new generations of children come to know and enjoy hearing
the exploits of Twm Sion Cati, Bartu Ddi, and the Rebecca Rioters. The Remembrance Evening on the 6th of October will be a great opportunity for the residents of Ceredigion to remember and celebrate T. Llew Jones’ contribution to the world of storytelling and myth making.”

This year’s evening will include a talk by guest speaker, Jon M O Jones. The
title of the chat is ‘Bwbw o ben Foel Gilie: memories of the rural
society of the Gilie’. There will also be a performance by Parti
Camddwr.

This is a Welsh Language event and Welsh learners are most welcome. The
evening is free, but booking is required. For more information, and to
book a place, contact Aberystwyth Library on 01970 633717 or email
library@ceredigion.gov.uk.
