In Cod We Trust – Eric Dregni

Reminder: Eric Dregni will be at Rochester Public Library on Sunday November 14 at 2:00 in the Auditorium.

From the library catalog: Norwegian-Americans, Minnesotans, and other fans will enjoy this wry, and often very funny volume by Dregni (creative writing, College of St. Catherine, St. Paul, Minn.). A Minnesotan of Norwegian extraction, he’s written a memoir of the year he and his wife and infant son spent in Trondheim, Norway, where he was on a Fulbright scholarship to learn about his roots and acquaint himself with Norwegian culture. As he writes it, this culture consists in large part of very long dark winters, uniquely Norwegian humor and toughness, ice and cold, skiing, and various kinds of preserved fish washed down, if possible, with aquavit. Includes a list of Norwegian phrases.
