Book Launch Celebration for Scandinavians in the State House: How Nordic Immigrants Shaped Minnesota Politics by Klas Bergman.

Come to the celebration to hear Klas Bergman discuss his new book with former State Legislator and current lawyer Tom Berg.

In Scandinavians in the State House, Klas Bergman explores who Nordic immigrant politicians were and what drove them to become civically involved so soon after arriving in Minnesota. Profiling the individuals and movements at the forefront of this political activity, at the state and local level, Bergman examines the diverse political philosophies of the immigrant communities and reveals the lasting legacy of Scandinavian politicians in the creation of modern Minnesota—from Nelson and Olson, to Andersen and Carlson, to Humphrey and Mondale.
