Our January 15, 2020 Author & Professor at “Universitetet i Nordland” in Bodø Norway, Kirsten Limstrand spoke on her book “Letters from Brooklyn” on the Norwegian emigrant experience in America.

Perhaps the moist interesting part of her presentation was her childhood view of the cousins in America who seemed to have such fancy clothes and live in such big homes. Later she found out that the clothes were their Sunday best and the home was the place they worked. The Norwegian immigrants lived behind the main house in much more humble quarters.
