ONLINE: Vesterheim “TVprat”—Atlantic Crossing

June 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

With a twist on Vesterheim’s monthly bokprat discussions of Scandinavian authors and Scandinavian life, join Dr. Maren Johnson, Luther College’s Associate Professor of Nordic Studies and Torgerson Center for Nordic Studies Director, for a “TVprat” discussion of the popular series Atlantic Crossing. Inspired by a true story of a friendship forged in wartime, Atlantic Crossing explores politics and ambition as Norway’s Crown Princess Martha flees to America for safety when her country is invaded by the Nazis, and is taken under the wing of the U.S. president, Franklin Roosevelt. Don’t hesitate to contact Andrew Ellingsen, Folk Art Coordinator, with any questions you may have (aellingsen@vesterheim.org).

Supplies: A computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.

Special Instructions: Registrants should have viewed all eight episodes of Atlantic Crossing discussion. When registering for the class, please make sure to use the email address you’d like the Zoom meeting invitations sent to. You will receive a link to the Zoom sessions by email sometime during the week prior to the discussion.

Enrollment here by June 24, 2021.
