Minnesota Gold - MN Olympians
Minnesota Gold - MN Olympians

Patrick Mader has had a lifetime fascination with Minnesota sports, history, and geography.
He combined those pursuits with his interest in elite international sporting events—primarily
the Olympics—to research, interview, and write about the lives, challenges, and
achievements of more than 100 living athletes from Minnesota who competed at the highest
level. Patrick discovered compelling stories that he thought should be preserved—the result
is Minnesota Gold and More Minnesota Gold, two fact-filled yet inspiring 400-page books in
full-color that span the years 1948 – present, covering a wide range of sports, a balance of
men and women, and represents every geographical part of the state. Please come to the
engaging and entertaining multimedia event and discover Minnesota Gold!
