The Dakota County Historical Society will host a virtual birthday party for political figure, Harold Stassen, on Monday, April 13. The virtual birthday party will feature author Steven Werle and begin at 6 p.m.
Registration is required to receive the meeting room invite and passcode. While the event is offered free of charge, donations are encouraged to offset the financial hardships COVID-19 is having on historic sites while they stay closed until May 1, per Governor Walz's order.
Steven Werle is author of the book Stassen Again that explores the meteoric rise, lifetime of achievements, and unique persona of “boy wonder," Harold Stassen. In celebration of Harold Stassen's birthday, Werle will discuss his book and why Stassen should be remembered for more than his ten unsuccessful runs at presidency. Virtual attendees will explore his contributions to Minnesota's political evolution and international cooperation for world peace.
