Norwegian Blogs About Odd Nansen Presentation

Share

On Saturday, August 20, I had the privilege of speaking to a Sons of Norway lodge in Roswell, GA. Attending was a young Norwegian exchange student, Anette Sorensen, who later provided an excellent summary of the talk, as well as some good photos, on her personal blog of her experiences in the US, “Anette in the USA.” I was particularly touched by her concluding sentence: “I find it absolutely amazing that a man from North Carolina, without any ties to Norway, took on this task [to republish Nansen’s diary] and became so engaged in the life of a Norwegian.” Thank you for those very kind words Anette!

Here’s the full blog post, with photos (apologies for those who don’t read Norwegian):
