Salon to Feature Celebrated MN Author Gordon Marino

Gordon Marino, PhD

The Oldenburg House in Carlton, just two hours north of the metro, will host a salon featuring the author Dr. Gordon Marino and his latest book, The Existentialist’s Survival Guide. The salon will be held on June 21st from 6-9pm in the Carlton Room of the historic Oldenburg House. Also joining will be a special guest from the UMD philosophy department.

Marino is a professor of philosophy and director of the Hong Kierkegaard Library at St. Olaf College. He is also a veteran boxing trainer, writer and former boxer with stories to tell not only as a pugilist but as an Italian-American from the East Coast who lives and works in the very Scandinavian town where cows, colleges, contentment and even cereal were the more likely topics of conversation during coffee until Marino’s how-to on “living authentically in an inauthentic age” was published this spring.

The salon, known as the Magnolia Salon by locals, takes place each Thursday where “ponderers” unite to share insights with each other as well as the with guest speakers or authors like Gordon Marino. Marino’s book will be offered for sale by Zenith Book Store, an independent bookstore in Duluth, MN.

Lindly Success Strategies, The Oldenburg House and Zenith Bookstore look forward to welcoming all to this salon and cultivating a discussion around the topic of existentialism, Søren Kierkegaard, and living authentically. 

Cost: Free will offering. Location: The Oldenburg House, 604 Chestnut Ave, Carlton, MN. For more information, contact Michelle Lind at Lindly Success Strategies, or 507-581-3502.
