Nordic Lodge No. 708 (Vasa Order)
On Sunday March 26, Nordic Lodge No. 708 (Vasa Order) will host a presentation by Dr. Anita Gustafson of Mercer University, entitled "Jenny Lind on Tour: The Nightingale, the Showman, and the Making of a Celebrity." Many Swedes are familiar with the famous Swedish opera singer from the 1840s and -50s, though perhaps not with her wildly successful American tour in 1850. The story is a fascinating one, that reflects both the promise and the challenges of the young and growing United States of those years. Fika will be shared at 4 PM before the presentation. Please see for details.
