Perfect Duluth Day | Duluth News Events Music and More



Laurie Hertzel book launch in Duluth on Thursday, Sept. 16

Laurie Hertzel, author of News to Me: Adventures of an Accidental Journalist, is going to be in Duluth launching her new book, Thursday evening, Sept. 16, at 7 pm, in Fitgers’ Spirit of the North theater.

News to Me tells the story of the 18 years Laurie spent working for the Duluth News Tribune, including her accompanying a group of Duluthians to what was then the Soviet Union in 1986, when they went to talk to the city officials in Petrozavodsk about setting up a sister city relationship. It’s a compelling read, and there’s some fabulous stories about what Duluth was like in the ’70s and ’80s. And to sweeten the deal, there’s going to be a cash bar, free meatballs, and I am introducing Laurie!

  3. This was a fabulous event, and there was more than just meatballs and beer for us after Laurie’s discussion of the book. Anyone interested in Duluth during the ’70s and ’80s should really read News to Me.

  4. Thanks! And if you haven’t had enough of me by now, come by St. Scholastica on Wednesday the 29th at 4 p.m. for a discussion.

    Meanwhile, it is a glorious and perfect day in Duluth and I, sadly, am heading back to the cities. See you all in two weeks.
