TODAY AT NOON: Lunch with Books: Norwegians in Wheeling

May 17, 2022
12:00pm - 1:00pm

Calendar Event Photo

Wheeling is a city of immigrants -- Italians, Germans, Greek, Lebanese, Scots-Irish, Irish-Irish, Polish. We know these populations well from their distinct festivals, churches, and fraternal organizations -- but what's not well known is the history (or non-history) of the Norse in Wheeling. To celebrate Syttende Mai (the 17th of May), Norwegian Constitution Day, Erin Rothenbuehler, the Director of the Bellaire Public Library, will present a comprehensive history of Norwegians in the Upper Ohio Valley, from the Viking age to the modern day. 

In addition to being in-person in the Library auditorium, this program will be available to watch live on Facebook Live, on YouTube, and on the OCPL website's LWB Livestream page Log into your Facebook or YouTube account during the program to leave questions for our presenters in the comments box. They will answer them during the live broadcast.
