Our Program – Owain Glyndwr - Presented By John Good, Scholar, Poet, Musician,
Teacher, And President Of Welsh League Of Arizona
“Owain Glyndwr was proclaimed Prince of Wales on September 16th, 1400. For over 10
years he successfully fought the English under Henry 4th and 5th, came close to freeing
Wales but sometime around 1415, with the ebb of his military fortunes, completely
disappeared off the face of the earth without leaving a trace. Around about this time Henry
the 5th offered him and his son Maredudd a pardon which received no recognition from the
two of them at all. My short story Glyndwr's Dream, is an historically based fantasy that
offers a reason for his disappearance and, for a man over 60 years old, the acceptance of
the deprecation of continuing to live the life of an outlaw somewhere in the wilds of Wales.”
Welsh League Member Lynn Mascarelli Featured at the ICC:
Friday, October 9th. Due to a private rental on First Friday, October 2nd, the ICC will be
holding First Friday on October 9th.
Once again artisan-author, Lynn Herdman Mascarelli, will be our featured artist for the
month of October here at the Irish Cultural Center. For the most part Celtic-themed, her
paintings and framed fabric art offer an array of lighthouses and landscapes, Celtic Crosses
and renderings of the medieval holy ones: Brendan and Brigid, Patrick and even Columba
with his Book of Kells. Mindful of the upcoming harvest season and Samhain, she will
include a few works representing our own local Dia de los Muertos as well. But there is
more...Lynn will be offering book-signings and light conversation about her latest book, The
Tomb Woman, the second in a series titled The Sacristan Mysteries set here in the
Sonoran. There will be food and music by The Guitar Man, Darron Weston, for your added
enjoyment as well...Lynn asks you to join her.
