Garrison Keillor

More Information

Description:

Lake Wobegon U.S.A. is the eagerly anticipated successor to News From Lake Wobegon (one of the bestselling spoken-word audios ever) and More News From Lake Wobegon. This collection contains 16 touching, exquisitely funny monologues from Garrison Keillor recorded during American Radio Company broadcasts from tour stops all over the country. The tales, says Keillor, are about "the luxury of rhubarb pie, the perils of prophecy, Florian and Myrtle's thrifty vacation, the vapor lights of Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility. . . ." They are also about joy, grief, dreams, luck, and mysteries—about the extraordinary moments of wonder that illuminate our ordinary lives. Contents: Fertility: The Kresbachs' Vacation; Prophet; The Six Labors of Father Wilmer; Fertility Patience: Aunt Ellie; Duke's 25th; You're Not the Only One Youth: Blue Devils; Nostalgia; Home Sweet Home; O Christmas Tree; Pageant; Messy Shoes Rhubarb: Rhubarb; Sweet Corn; The Sun's Gonna Shine Someday; Yellow Ribbon
