Syttende Mai with Vesterheim!
Join Vesterheim for this free, lunchtime webinar as we celebrate Syttende Mai!

Norwegian storyteller Anne Elisebeth Skogen will join the webinar from Ryfylkemuseet at Sand, Norway to tell the story, 'My Last 17 Mai in My Hometown, Now as a Red Russ.' Last year, Anne Elisebeth joined this event to share her memories of her first Syttende Mai parade (view the full recording at vesterheim.org), and this year she will continue the story with her memories of russefeiring, a long-standing tradition for high school graduates in Norway. Anne Elisebeth grew up in the little town of Egersund, Norway, south of Stavanger. With an education in drama and storytelling, Anne Elisebeth runs her own storytelling business, telling stories for schools, organizations, festivals, and companies.

This event is made possible by a generous gift to the Vesterheim Annual Fund from Jeff and Marilyn Roverud. The Roveruds have supported Vesterheim's Syttende Mai festivities for the past 24 years.

For more information about additional in-person celebrations taking place on May 17 on Vesterheim's campus in Decorah, Iowa, visit vesterheim.org.
