Last night, Minnesota author Lorna Landvik launched her 11th book, Once in a Blue Moon Lodge, at an event hosted by Excelsior Bay Books. There was a sold-out crowd of 250 guests at Trinity Church in Excelsior, Minn., for the big night, which included an hour-long program, themed Norwegian and Minnesota refreshments, and prizes.
