December 2017 Luncheon

December 2017 Luncheon

Anja, Lori & Per- The Wish Books Family

Meet the creators of The Wish Books! The Christmas Wish, the first book in the series and a New York Times Best Seller, started with photos the family did with their then four-year old daughter, Anja, in Norway. Those photos evolved into a bestselling story book about Anja's magical quest to find Santa with help from a menagerie of Arctic animals. Since then they have published 4 additional books, and collaborated on a merchandise line of plush, puzzles and more. The first three books are optioned for live action movies.

The family will show a 20 minute multi-media presentation about how their book project evolved. It includes voiceovers from Per, Anja and Lori, many slides from Norway, the books and other related images, and videos. Afterwards, Anja will play violin and sing Norwegian folk songs.

Autograph books will be available to purchase, just in time for the holidays!

Location Map

We are a vibrant group of professional women
who are interested in contemporary Norwegian
issues and all things Norwegian. 


The Lakselaget Scholarship and Opportunity
Fund was established to celebrate, encourage
and advance the organization's motto,
women who swim against the current. 


Lakselaget holds monthly luncheons where
members gather to network, share news, and
take part in a traditional Norwegian meal
of salmon, potatoes and cucumber salad.
