Julie Lindahl at ASI: Contemporary Issues in Sweden

Wednesday, July 31, 2019 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Author Julie Lindahl will be in Minneapolis for two speaking engagements at the end of July. On Wednesday, July 31, she will be giving a talk at ASI entitled "Contemporary Issues in Sweden." The previous evening, she will be at the Minneapolis Central Library giving a presentation entitled “A Story of Two People Who Gave up on Democracy,” which focuses on her latest work, The Pendulum, a memoir about her research into her family’s history and involvement in the Nazi party.

Both events are presented by the JCRC (Jewish Community Relations Council), HCL (Hennepin Country Library) and ASI. Each presentation is free to attend but registration is encouraged - ASI will be taking registrations for the talk held here as well as the event held at the Minneapolis Central Library.
