Garrison Keillor will be in New Orleans May 13 to promote his newest book, The Keillor Reader: Plain Thoughts on Fatherhood, Writing, Politics and Age, which was published today.
The writer and radio personality known for hosting American Public Media's A Prairie Home Companion and The Writer's Almanac will read and perform at Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Octavia Books and WWNO are hosting the author in conjunction with Le Petit, and tickets for the event can be purchased here, or by calling Octavia Books (504-899-7323). The ticket is the cost of a book and can be exchanged for a signed copy of the book at the reading. Attendees also will be invited to meet the author onstage after the reading.
