Nordic Center holds author lecture

Margi Preus will discuss the background history and her research into the Norwegian Resistance for her recent book, “Shadow on the Mountain,” at the Nordic Center in Duluth on Thursday.

Using slides in PowerPoint format, Preus tells how an old photo album started her on this journey and how a series of serendipitous events led to her meeting and interviewing the man whose story is the basis for “Shadow on the Mountain.”

Preus is a New York Times bestselling author whose other books include several picture books and the Newbery Honor winning “Heart of a Samurai.” Her recent young-adult novel has also received awards and honors, including being named a Notable Book for a Global Society, one of Bank Street College Best Books of 2012 and a VOYA Top Shelf for Middle Grade readers.
