Augsburg College President Paul Pribbenow and I arrived in Oslo this morning, in advance of the Nobel prize ceremonies and some Forum-related meetings.
Even before we reached the city center, the pre-Nobel Ceremony excitement was obvious. As the CNN international reporter who has covered the Ceremony for several years, Jonathan Mann’s face peered prominently from an ad on the airport train. His interviews with each of the three Laureates are scheduled for Saturday. He’s a skilled and experienced interviewer who will draw out the best in these remarkable women (check this page for interview details). Needless to say, we’re very excited to soak it all in.
We’ll be posting updates to the blog over the next few days, so stay tuned. And don’t forget to visit the Nobel Prize website for streaming video of the Peace Prize ceremony (December 10) and other events.
