About Garrison Keillor

During the pandemic lockdown in New York, Garrison Keillor wrote Boom Town, reading drafts to his wife, Jenny, across the room. Parts of the book were performed in monologues for audiences in Boston, New York, Washington, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Virginia, as well as the story about how, in the eighth grade, Orville Buehler, concerned about the boy’s carelessness with power saws, sent him to LaVona Person’s speech class, which changed his life forever. The key to success for most people is discipline and education, but for me, it was ineptitude with power tools.” His column appears twice a week on Substack.
