Garrison Keillor’s protean talent has embraced every possible genre, as author (22 books), story teller, poet, essayist, humorist, and most notably, radio personality—as the host of public radio’s beloved A Prairie Home Companion for 30 years. The weekly radio broadcast, famous for its folksy mix of comedy sketches, original songs and Keillor’s signature monologue “The News from Lake Wobegon,” has become, along with its creator, a national institution.
