CONCORDIA LANGUAGE VILLAGES TO HOST CONVERSATION
ABOUT NORWAY TERRORIST ATTACKS
Concordia Language Villages and Skogfjorden, the Norwegian Language Village, are teaming up with the Nordmanns-Forbundet organization to host a conversation with Hallgrimm Berg, president of Nordmanns-Forbundet, and Anne Wangberg, editor of “Norwegians Worldwide,” about the response to the terrorist attacks July 22 in Norway. The event will take place at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7, at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Edina, Minn.
Berg will speak about the impact the attacks have had on Norwegian society and the role the royal family has played in helping the country learn from and understand this tragedy. “Norwegians Worldwide,” the new Nordmanns-Forbundet magazine, had an exclusive interview with King Harald and Wangberg will also attend the event and add her thoughts.
In addition, villagers, staff and families from past Skogfjorden summers will participate in a brief program. Skogfjorden villagers, many who were in session this summer on July 22, will share their perspectives on the attacks.
Concordia Language Villages, a program of Concordia College, Moorhead, Minn., offers programs year-round to all ages, from infants to seniors. Sites are located throughout the north woods of Minnesota. Programs in 15 languages annually attract nearly 11,000 participants from all 50 states and many countries.
