From Poetry To A Prairie Home

Oct 1, 2013

He’s a Minnesota guy on public radio with a loyal following. No, we're not talking about our own Steve Kraske.

Garrison Keillor joins Steve Kraske on Up to Date.

On Wednesday's Up to Date, Garrison Keillor joins Steve to talk about his new book of poetry, O, What a Luxury: Verses Lyrical, Vulgar, Pathetic and Profound. We take a look at how he stays on top of his game when writing and producing and find out what he does to get around writer’s block.

HEAR MORE: Garrison Keillor talks about his new book of poetry at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday October 8 at Unity Temple on the Plaza. You can receive a copy of the book at two tickets to see Keillor by pledging $120 or more during the Up to Date segments of KCUR's Fall Membership Drive.  Call Rainy Day Books in Fairway at 913 384 3126 for details about the event.
