An authentic American original, Garrison Keillor is a disarming, witty, and always-entertaining writer, humorist, and celebrity speaker, best known for his immensely popular A Prairie Home Companion (heard by more than 2 million listeners on 450 NPR stations weekly). Keillor will share delightful anecdotes about growing up in the American Midwest, "late-life fatherhood," and his new book Pilgrims A Novel of Lake Wobegon in which the mythical town's residents relay stories of astonishing frankness and self-revelation, all delivered with Keillor's trademark wit. This modern-day Mark Twain captivates audiences and delivers with class, charisma, and wisdom.
