An excerpt from the popular radio host's book, Lake Wobegon Days.
Typescript signed: "Garrison Keillor", 1p, 8½x11. Headed: "An excerpt from/LAKE WOBEGON DAYS/by/GARRISON KEILLOR". In part: "The town of Lake Wobegon, Minnesota lies on the shore against Adams Hill, looking east across the blue-green water to the dark woods. From the south, the highway aims for the lake, bends hard left by the magnificent concrete Grecian grain silos, and eases over a leg of the hill past the SLOW CHILDREN sign, bringing the traveler in on Main Street toward the town's one traffic light, which is almost always green...A quarter-mile away, a silver boat sits off the weeds in Sunfish Bay...The sun makes a trail of shimmering lights across the water. It would make quite a picture if you had the right lens, which nobody in this town has got." While hosting a classical musical program on Minnesota Public Radio (1968-1982), Garrison Keillor began broadcasting mock commercials for nonexistent businesses in the fictional town of Lake Wobegon, Minnesota. In 1974, he began hosting his own show, "A Prairie Home Companion". The show combined music, comedy and storytelling, both by and about its rustic characters. Originally heard nationally as a radio special in 1979, the show eventually was carried by more than 200 public radio stations, and its creator was honored with a 1981 Peabody Award and 1987 Grammy Award. Keillor collected some of his stories in his 1985 book, Lake Wobegone Days, which earned a 1985 Grammy Award for its audio version. Fine condition.
