Minnesotans have long been known for their humble nature and work ethic, and as such have long taken great pride in their athletics.  Two books by Minnesota author Patrick Mader, Minnesota Gold and More Minnesota Gold, feature compelling stories told by more than 100 Minnesota athletes participating in the Olympics, World Championships, and World Cups from 1948 to present.  As they pursued their dreams and persevered to compete in the greatest international competitions, these diverse athletes represented their state with dignity and brought pride to sports fans in all regions.  Patrick will present an engaging multimedia program as he shares the fascinating in-person conversations he had with these remarkable men and women who honored their sport, their state, and their country on the world stage over the last seven decades and now “give back” to their sport and community. Discover true Minnesota gold!  This free program is 60 minutes in length, recommended for high schoolers and adults, and books will be available for purchase following the program.
