about

To Hear The Skylark’s Song is a wonderfully evocative memoir of growing up in a village in south Wales in the 1960s and 1970s. The village is Aberfan. This is an account of life in a Welsh mining village towards the end of its role as an industrial settlement. And, of course, amidst the inconsolable grief of a place made bereft of a generation of children when tip No.7 slid onto Pantglas school on 21 October, 1966. To Hear The Skylark’s Song is a moving story of how Aberfan lived on. Huw Lewis mixes memory with mature reflection to reveal the shadow that fell on his individual existence and the dynamics of a still vibrant community lifted up by the spirited joy of a skylark’s song.
Huw Lewis, former assembly member for Merthyr Tydfil and Minister for Education in the Welsh Government, was born in Aberfan in 1963.
