“Downtown Skyline from Loring Park” from the City of Minneapolis Collection in the Hennepin County Library Digital Collection.

Journalist Carey McWilliams wrote a famous article in 1946 called “Minneapolis: The Curious Twin.” It established an enduring impression of Minneapolis as the “capital of antisemitism” in mid-20th-century America. Join historian Laura Weber as she takes a close look at the “Curious Twin.” What was the article’s genesis? Who was its author? What was its contemporary reception? The discussion is based on her recent article in Middle West Review, which demythologizes McWilliams’ characterization of Minneapolis as the U.S. capital of antisemitism. The event is free and open to all. Reservations requested for this event, Wednesday, Oct. 19, noon-1 p.m. at Elmer L. Andersen Library.
