The Luther College Book Shop will host a book signing session with author Douglas "Dag" Rossman for his book "Way of the Elves: A Nine World Saga" from 1-2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22 in the Luther College Book Shop in Dahl Centennial Union on the Luther campus.
"Way of the Elves: A Nine World Saga" is a Norwegian mythological tale that takes readers to Alfheim, the mysterious and magical place of the Nine Worlds. Following in the footsteps of the spunky elf-maid Aelas and her wise uncle, the elf-wizard Formidar, readers hunt for a stolen dragon's egg, face a fearsome Frost Giant in the frozen lair and await the return of the Dragonseeker. "Way of the Elves: A Nine World Saga" is the second in a series of books written by Rossman, set in the Nine Worlds of Norse mythology.
The book is available for purchase in the Book Shop for $8.95.
The signing session with Rossman is open to public with no charge for admission.
Rossman's stories have appeared in the Sons of Norway's Viking magazine and the Mythic Circle magazine. His storytelling skills are in great demand at folk festivals, heritage camps and other Scandinavian events.
After retiring from his position as a biology professor at Louisiana State University for more than 35 years, Rossman and his wife now live in Decorah, Iowa. Together, they created a major exhibit at the Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum titled "Echoes of Odin: Norse Mythology in Scandinavia and America," and served as consultants for the Smithsonian traveling exhibition "Vikings: The North Atlantic Saga" at the Minnesota Science Museum.
