Scott Berg Lecture and Book Signing
Author Scott W. Berg will speak on his new book, 38 Nooses: Lincoln, Little Crow and the Beginning of the Frontier’s End. The book details six weeks of intense conflict along the Minnesota frontier as the Dakota people clashed with settlers and federal troops. Berg places these events within the larger context of the Civil War, the history of the Dakota people, and the subsequent United States–Indian wars. It is a revelation of an overlooked but seminal moment in American history.
Born and raised in the Twin Cities, Scott W. Berg holds a BA in architecture from the University of Minnesota, an MA from Miami University of Ohio, and an MFA in creative writing from George Mason University, where he now teaches writing and literature. The author of Grand Avenues: The Story of Pierre Charles L’Enfant, the French Visionary Who Designed Washington, D.C., he is a regular contributor to The Washington Post.
