Former residents, Leonard and Katie Worth, will be making a presentation on April 16th at 12:00 p.m. at the Redwood Falls Public Library. They will share their visit with former Danish exchange student and 1989 graduate of Redwood-Morton High School, Annie Nielsen. Their presentation will cover the influence Redwood Falls had on Annie.
During their presentation, they will take you on a tour of the oldest church in Denmark, farming strategies, and daily life in Denmark. You will visit the North Sea where 4,000 American soldiers lost their lives to help Denmark regain control of their country.
While in Norway you’ll visit Queen Asa’s Viking death ship from 826, travel under Oslo through the underground tunnel, and visit the top of a mountain to the home site of Leonard’s great grandfather. You will also have the opportunity to visit the emigrant museum outlining the lives of emigrants from Norway to Minnesota.

Book ClubsInterested in joining a daytime book club? We meet the 4th Tuesday of each month in the Library Meeting Room from 12:00 to 1:00 or 2:00 p.m. Come and check us out! There's always room for more. (We are enjoying really good lunches, too!) We meet for discussion and potluck. The following are the 2013 selections with menu, January through June, 2013:
March 26th – The Life of Pi by Yann Martel with baked potato bar. Life of Pi is a masterful and utterly original novel that is at once the story of a young castaway who faces immeasurable hardships on the high seas, and a meditation on religion, faith, art and life that is as witty as it is profound. Using the threads of all of our best stories, Yann Martel has woven a glorious spiritual adventure that makes us question what it means to be alive, and to believe.
April 23rd – Grace if Silence by Michele Morris with waffles and breakfast. While exploring the hidden conversation on race unfolding throughout American Norris discovered that there were painful secrets within her own family that had been willfully withheld. The result is a rich and extraordinary family memoir that boldly examines racial legacy and what it means to be an American.
May 28th – Nothing Daunted by Dorothy Wickenden with Tacos. In 1916, Dorothy woodruff and Rosamond Underwood, bored by their society luncheons, charity work, and the young men who courted them, learned that two teaching jobs were available in a remote mountaintop schoolhouse in Colorado and applied; shocking their families and friends.
June 25th – Canada by Richard Ford with a picnic. When fifteen-year-old Dell Parsons’ parents rob a bank, his sense of a normal life is forever altered. In an instant, this private cataclysm drives his life across a threshold that can never be uncrossed.
Everyone is welcome! Come when you can.
Other Book Club Ideas? - The Library would also encourage other book clubs to get started. Are you interested in an evening group? A men’s group? A mystery group? The Library would help by ordering copies of the title chosen and provide discussion questions. You would be responsible for selecting your own titles and leading the group discussions.
