Dregni_Cod coverEric Dregni will be at the Sons of Norway Vestland Lodge on Tuesday, April 17 at 7:00 p.m. for a reading and signing of In Cod We Trust: Living the Norwegian Dream.


In this cross-cultural memoir, Eric Dregni tells the hair-raising, hilarious, and sometimes poignant stories of his family’s yearlong Norwegian experiment. In Cod We Trust is one Minnesota family’s spirited excursion into Scandinavian life, where the land of the midnight sun is far stranger than they previously thought, and their encounters show that there is much we can learn from its unique and surprising culture.


"A hilariously fun and moving read for anyone who has dreamed of returning to the Norwegian homeland." —Walter Mondale


"Eric Dregni's spirited travel memoir to Norway joins that classic American genre—the quest tale in search of family and ethnic roots. It's a special pleasure to see the Scandinavian immigration story teased out here with wit and acuity, the immigrant going the other way. In Cod We Trust is the story of a man not only looking for his family past but welcoming the next generation." —Patricia Hampl
