Tuesday Open House: "Prohibition: A Grand Misadventure" with David Jones

  • Mindekirken 924 East 21st Street Minneapolis, MN, 55404 United States (map)

Weekly on Tuesdays, Mindekirken, the Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church in Minneapolis adjacent to Norway House, hosts a luncheon with a speaker or performance of interest to our community. This week: "Women in the Bible" with Michael Rogness of Luther Seminary.

Note: This is the last TOH of the season.

In 1920, the United States entered a period during which the manufacture, sale, and transportation of intoxicating liquors was banned. As it turned out, the US also entered a period of lawlessness and corruption, unequaled in its history. Rather than curing the ills of society, Prohibition is remembered for creating some of the worst possible results - thus, this period is remembered as one of the greatest misadventures ever.
David Jones is a resident of Minneapolis and a native of St. Peter, MN. He graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College and spent 24 years in the financial services industry and three years in the nonprofit sector.
