Life Story Project: Lecture by Eric Bergeson

  • Essentia Health Living Center 403 North Foss Avenue Fosston, MN, 56542 United States (map)

The Fosston Community Library Arts Association will be sponsoring a presentation by Eric Bergeson on April 13 at 7:00 pm at the Fosston Library Arts Theater.  


Eric Bergeson is an author and speaker from Fertile, MN. His sixth book, “A Treasury of Old Souls”, is a collection of stories about elderly people who befriended him as he grew up on the family nursery in rural Fertile. The lessons he learned from them stuck with Eric ever since. The heroism and humor of his elderly friends as they moved from full independence to requiring nursing home care is the central theme of “Treasury.” Eric will share stories of his Great Aunt Olive, who lived to 103 years of age, and other elderly folks who have enriched his life.
