One of America’s most beloved radio hosts, author and humorist, Garrison Keillor has enthralled audiences for years with A Prairie Home Companion. At its peak, some 4 million listeners on more than 600 public radio stations coast to coast and beyond tuned in each week. Keillor has been honored with Grammy, ACE, and George Foster Peabody awards, the National Humanities Medal, and election to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His many books include Lake Wobegon Days, The Book of Guys, Pilgrims: A Wobegon Romance, and Guy Noir and the Straight Skinny. He is the host of the daily program The Writer’s Almanac and the editor of several anthologies of poetry, most recently, Good Poems: American Places.

“What remains remarkable about Keillor, after more than 40 years behind a microphone and keyboard, is that he doesn't collect stories via interviews. He simply lives: observing, eavesdropping, chitchatting, remembering, daydreaming, then spinning his entire life experience into tales that may be fantastical but are always true.”
