Garrison Keillor - The Keillor Reader
Warwick's, Sunday, June 8 at 3pm
Warwick's is hosting New York Times bestselling author Garrison Keillor on June 8th at 3:00pm to represent his latest book, The Keillor Reader. More information coming soon.....

For the first time, Keillor’s stories, essays, poems, and personal reminiscences have been brought together in a single volume that celebrates and demonstrates the incredible range of his far-reaching talent.

When, at thirteen, he caught on as a sportswriter for the Anoka Herald, Garrison Keillor set out to become a professional writer, and so he has done. This book captures the full scope of his work, including monologues from A Prairie Home Companion, stories from The New Yorker and The Atlantic, excerpts from novels, humorous poetry, and a handful of never-before-published pieces, including the essays “Cheerfulness” and “What We Have Learned So Far.” Furthermore, the inclusion of photos, memorabilia, an extensive introduction, and headnotes provide a rich context for this singular collection.

In a vibrant blend of nonfiction, fiction, and straight-up parody, Keillor once again draws on his lifetime of experience and extraordinary writing. The Keillor Reader also features familiar characters such as Guy Noir, cowboys Dusty and Lefty, and many more favorites from Lake Wobegon, the town dubbed the “Gateway to Central Minnesota.”

A Prairie Home Companion has been broadcast since 1974, and today is heard by 4 million listeners each week on more than 600 public radio stations. Now in his seventies, Keillor reflects on his experiences as a husband, father, humorist, writer, and someone who can, as he says, “speak into a microphone in a warm and familiar manner.”
