A Conversation with Thomas Jefferson
Sat., 10/29/16, 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Thomas Jefferson (portrayed by Clay Jenkinson) talks with WCCO Radio's John Williams about America's beginnings, addresses current day issues from his point-of-view and takes questions from the crowd.
Rune Stones American Style
Tue., Nov 1, 2016, 7-9 pm
$15. Tickets on sale through the American Association for Runic Studies
Runic inscriptions on stone monuments and other objects are often thought to only exist in Europe, but they also exist in the United States. This presentation from Henrik Williams will explore American rune stones, including the latest translation of the inscription on Minnesota’s Kensington Runestone.
Henrik Williams is an authority of Old Norse languages and a professor of Scandinavian languages at Sweden’s Uppsala University. 
This program is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Minnesota Historical Society, Uppsala University, American Friends of Uppsala University, American Association for Runic Studies and the Minnesota Vikings.
