Arts Alliance, Reading Frenzy Corner prove to be powerful draw at Saturday’s open house

Eric Dregni, author of “In Cod We Trust: Living the Norwegian Dream,” had a large audience at an author signing to help celebrate the grand re-opening of the Elk River Arts Alliance and the grand opening of Reading Frenzy Corner on Saturday in downtown Elk River. Several hundred people turned out to see the new Arts Alliance space and its new partner in Reading Frenzy. Dregni was chosen in part to help highlight Scandanavian heritage on display right now by the American Swedish Institute.
