Garrison Keillor, A Prairie Home Companion

About Garrison Keillor

Radio personality, writer, humorist and actor Garrison Keillor is a native Minnesotan who began his career as a radio announcer for Minnesota Public Radio at the age of 17 back in 1959.  His fame rests on A Prairie Home Companion which he hosted and largely wrote for 42 years; inventing places (Lake Wobegon), people (Guy Noir) and products ( the Ketchup Advisory Board), which live on in the public imagination. He has published numerous book and national articles and won a Grammy for the audio version of Lake Wobegon Days. His weekly podcast, The Writer's Almanac, is available online.
