Dregni_By coverEric Dregni will be at the Minnetonka Community Center on Thursday, October 26 at 10:15 a.m. for a reading and signing of his book By the Waters of Minnetonka.

 

Eric Dregni, who grew up in Minnetonka, sheds light on intriguing, if at times unsettling, aspects of the lake’s history, challenging myths and revisiting forgotten or glossed over elements of the past. He also relates—and sometimes pokes fun at—the opulent, glamorous, and sometimes raucous moments that have made Lake Minnetonka an icon of splendid resort living in Minnesota. 

 

"There’s a whole new way of appreciating Lake Minnetonka as a rich, storied, all-too-human place... At last someone wrote it down." —Mpls. St. Paul Magazine

 

"Eric Dregni’s lively illustrated history of the lake and its communities is ripe with sometimes wacky, always entertaining stories about the area’s gorgeous hotels, the peculiar businesses (ginseng distributing, ice harvesting, apple growing) and how this area grew from Indian country to become the playground of the elite." —Star Tribune
