Garrison Keillor will present his new poetry collection O, What a Luxury: Verses Lyrical, Vulgar, Pathetic & Profound

10/08/2013 7:00 pm

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Garrison Keillor, the creator of NPR's beloved A Prairie Home Companion, will present his New Poetry Collection O, What a Luxury: Verses Lyrical, Vulgar, Pathetic & Profound.

ABOUT GARRISON KEILLOR:  Garrison Keillor lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota, home of A Prairie Home Companion, his radio show that has been on the air since 1974.  He is the Author of many Books including the Lake Wobegon novels, and he edits the Good Poems anthologies.  He is a contributor to the New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly and  In 2006, he wrote the screenplay for the film A Prairie Home Companion, directed by Robert Altman.

ABOUT O, WHAT A LUXURY: O What a Luxury: Verses Lyrical, Vulgar, Pathetic & Profound is the first Poetry Collection written by Garrison Keillor, the celebrated radio host of A Prairie Home Companion.  Although he has edited several anthologies of his favorite poems, this volume forges a new path for him, as a poet of light verse.  He writes—with his characteristic combination of humor and insight—on love, modernity, nostalgia, politics, religion, and other facets of daily life.  Keillor’s verses are charming and playful, locating sublime song within the humdrum of being human.
