What will Keillor Talk about?

Humorist and author to speak in Ketchum Monday


By JENNIFER LIEBRUM
Express Staff Writer

Popular humorist Garrison Keillor isn't talking. At least not in advance of his sold-out appearance scheduled for Monday, March 5, at the Presbyterian Church of the Big Wood.

The popular talker, host of the radio program "Prairie Home Companion" and author of many best-selling books, will be the final speaker in the Sun Valley Center for the Arts 2011--12 Lecture Series.

Keillor's humorous take on life centers around tales from Lake Wobegon, the fictitious Minnesota town where "all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking and all the children are above average." He is also a contributor to The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly and Salon.com.

Keillor's lecture is a part of The Center's fifth year of presenting a lecture series.

The series has included voices as wide ranging as feminist Gloria Steinem, Pulitzer Prize winner Junot Diaz and former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer.

The goal of the series is to stimulate conversations in the community on topics of local and national importance.
