Garrison Keillor at Diesel, A Bookstore in Malibu

Diesel, A Bookstore in Malibu welcomes Garrison Keillor to the store to discuss his latest collection, The Keillor Reader on Saturday, June 7th at 7 pm.

Garrison Keillor is a writer, a storyteller, sometime comedian, essayist, newspaper columnist, screenwriter, and a poet. Now a single volume brings together the full range of his work: monologues from A Prairie Home Companion, stories from The New Yorker and The Atlantic, and excerpts from novels and newspaper columns. Along with an extensive introduction, headnotes, photographs, and memorabilia, The Keillor Reader presents pieces never before published, including the essays "Cheerfulness" and "What We Have Learned So Far." The Keillor Reader is chock full of notions about how to navigate life's murkier waters, all told with the bracing wit and beautiful turns of phrase Keillor is known for.

Garrison Keillor is the founder and host of A Prairie Home Companion, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in July 2014. The author of nineteen books of fiction and humor, Keillor is also the editor of the Good Poems collections and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
