Overview

"You get old and you realize there are no answers, just stories"—a single line from one of Garrison Keillor's novels is a fitting introduction to the dry wit and folksy charisma of its author. The beloved radio personality and former host of NPR's A Prairie Home Companion (for more than 40 years!), Keillor holds court with his signature blend of self-deprecating humor and homespun wisdom, sharing anecdotes about life in the fictional Midwestern hamlet of Lake Wobegon. He will be joined by Guy's All-Star Shoe Band pianist Richard Dworsky and vocalist Heather Masse of The Wailin' Jennys.
