Norwegian-American Edina Women Hand Down Lefse Tradition

Both are members of Edina Morningside Community Church, who decided (“We were asked,” emphasizes Olson) to participate in a church-wide program called Morningside U, where participants share their talents with the community. Others before them had taught memoir writing and cartoon drawing.
