Episode Summary

Garrison Keillor at City Arts & Lectures
Garrison Keillor continues to expand his unique role in American radio, literature, and culture. His weekly broadcasts of "A Prairie Home Companion" have reinvigorated radio.Recorded live at the Fitzgerald Theater in St Paul, Minnesota for more than thirty years, "A Prairie Home Companion" is appreciated by over four million listeners and locally on KQED 88.5 FM. "The News from Lake Wobegon," based on Keillor's own hometown of Anoka, Minnesota, richly reports life in a quintessential but fictional town "where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average."The stories of Lake Wobegon have been expanded into sixteen books, including Lake Wobegon Days, Love Me, and Homegrown Democrat and, most recently, Liberty, which examines how patriotism and politics affect this beloved community.Additionally, Keillor, an avid poetry advocate, has published his first volume of his own work entitled Love Sonnets - City Arts & Lecturesmoreless
