1961: A Minnesota Sports Retrospective

Ross Bernstein will bring the 60th anniversary of an exciting MN sports year to life with a presentation featuring stories from the Minnesota Vikings, the Minnesota Twins and more. As a sports historian and author, Bernstein has chronicled many of the events which took place in 1961 and in this presentation he will highlight what was so special about that year – the year that the Vikings and the Twins came to be, the Gopher Football team played its last Rose Bowl and the Minneapolis Lakers moved to Los Angeles. Learn about the many heroes from that era in a fun-filled evening you don’t want to miss.

This event is made possible thanks to funding from the Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund. Lake Agassiz Regional Library is hosting this event in celebration of its 60th anniversary. The library system was founded in 1961. This live virtual event will be available Tuesday, March 23 at 7:30 p.m. on the Lake Agassiz Regional Library Facebook page.
