Vikings In the Attic author Eric Dregni will be at the library on Friday, 10/18/13 at 7:00 p.m. Are you Swedish, Norwegian or Danish? Or maybe you know someone who is...please join us for a night of tales and treats.

What does it mean to grow up Scandinavian-American or to live with these Norwegians, Swedes, Finns, Danes, and Icelanders among us? In Vikings in the Attic (2011), Dregni tracks down and explores the significant—and quite often bizarre—historic sites, tales, and traditions of Scandinavia’s peculiar colony in the Midwest.
