Last chance to purchase Augsburg’s 150th History

With everything happening in 2020, you might have forgotten that this is also Augsburg’s sesquicentennial year. If you haven’t done so yet, now would be a great time to read “Hold Fast to What is Good,” the official history of the University for its 150 anniversary.

The history of Augsburg is the history of America, in microcosm. That’s my take away after reading the remarkably fast-paced, entertaining and deeply meaningful “Hold Fast to What is Good: A History of Augsburg University in 10 Objects.” Augsburg’s history, like that of America, includes the struggles of generations of immigrants, the industrial revolution, the civil rights movement, modern feminism, and the broader quest for equity and inclusion. Featuring fascinating and largely unknown stories from Augsburg’s past, including tales of murder, world explorers, major land deals gone awry, the ancient city of Troy, and protest marches at the height of the Vietnam war, this book is that rare history that transcends the past.
