2023-06-12 – Family Book Walk: Seven Ways to Trick a Troll



Weekly, June 12-July 30 


This is an in-person series of events held in seven of Decorah's beautiful parks. More information will be shared in May.


This series is offered in partnership with Decorah Parks & Recreation, the Decorah Community School District, and The Oneota Valley Literary Foundation.


This summer, get your family outside to explore Decorah's beautiful parks and experience the joy of reading together! For seven weeks, in seven different parks, enjoy Lise Lunge-Larsen's Seven Ways to Trick a Troll. As you read, your family will learn how the best things about being human (patience, kindness, courage, and quick thinking) are also what works against trolls! Taken from a wide range of historical and international sources, Seven Ways to Trick a Troll will delight and entertain imaginations of all ages. 

Whether you hit the trail for one week or all seven, plan to take a family selfie by one of the story pages. Each family who brings a picture to Vesterheim will receive a FREE copy of the book! (Limit one book per family.)

Your family can be any combination of folks as long as there’s at least one adult to help navigate the trail.

Complete information about the schedule and locations will be added in May.

Remember the Nordic philosophy: "There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing. Dress for fun outside!" 


Vesterheim’s outdoor youth programs are supported in part by a generous gift to the Vesterheim Annual Fund from the “All of Us” Research Program through the Gundersen Health System Foundation. For more information about this research, visit joinallofus.org/Gundersen.
