Susan Hvistendahl wrote a monthly column, “Historic Happenings,” for The Entertainment Guide magazine from 2007 to 2016. Historic Happenings Volume 1 contains selected columns, expertly researched and wonderfully written, resurrecting regional stories from Northfield’s past and is now offered in its newly published and updated second edition.

Watch a short video of author Susan Hvistendahl reading “Lions in Northfield” about the horrific event when five lions attacked their trainer at a carnival in Northfield on August 19, 1915.

On September 9, 2021 Susan gave a presentation on the history of The Archer House (which is included in this book) at the Northfield Public Library. You can watch it here:
