Michael Kleiner to promote Beyond the Cold at Norsk Høstfest in North Dakota

Michael Kliener is an author and SBN fellow member. He's working with Eco-Libris to green up his new book "Beyond the Cold: An American's Warm Portrait of Norway", and this week he will be participating and promoting his book at Norsk Høstfest, Norwegian Fall Festival, the largest Scandinavian festival in North America!

Here are the details:

Høstfest, Norwegian Fall Festival, the largest Scandinavian festival in North America, will take place on Oct. 1-Oct. 4 in Minot, North Dakota. The annual event, now in its 31st year, draws 60,000 people, including from Norway and the other Scandinavian countries.

Høstfest is consistently among the top 100 tourist destinations in the United States by the American Bus Association. Entertainment includes The Beach Boys, Charley Pride, Oak Ridge Boys, Randy Travis, Kenny Rogers, as well as Norwegian cultural music. Norwegian culinary treats will be available as well as clothing.

Congrats to Michael. He will also offer copies of his book for sale at the festival - each one of them with our sticker on, demonstrating the fact that one tree is planted for each copy. You are welcome to follow Michael's reports from the festival - he hopes to write a daily blog (subscribe to the RSS feed at http://podcast.beyondthecold.com). There will also be an ad in Norwegian-American Weekly this week and next week on their new Book section, indicating Michael will be at the Festival. The paper will be readily available at the Festival.
