Our next regular meeting

Wednesday, May 31st There is a program on Runic Inscriptions, which will start right after our business meeting. Library doors open at 6pm for researchers.

What are runes? What does runic writing teach us about our Scandinavian ancestry? This presentation will provide an overview of the thousands of rune stones existing today, primarily in Scandinavia, but some in North America. Runic Inscriptions in Norway will be highlighted.

About the Speaker: Loraine Jensen is the President and founder of the American Association for Runic Studies (AARS), a nonprofit organization based in Roseville, MN, promoting scholarly research on runes and runic inscriptions in Europe and North America. Jensen became intensely interested in rune stones and runic inscriptions when working as a consultant for the Kensington Rune Stone Park Foundation while living in Alexandria, MN. She is currently an education specialist for the Minnesota Dept. of Education.
