Garrison Keillor:

Just Passing Through

Sat., March 17, 2018 at 8 p.m.

Spend a rousing evening with the leading connoisseur of life’s cherished moments, as Garrison Keillor returns with his wonderfully wry anecdotes about growing up in the Midwest, the people of Lake Wobegon, and “late-life fatherhood.” The host of NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion for over 30 years, Keillor is back with his gentle humor and disarming wisdom to share his passion for everything from love, religion and politics, to the great journey of life.

11/29/17 Executive Director Update: Today we learned Garrison Keillor has been fired by Minnesota Public Radio over a report of “improper behavior.” We are saddened by this news and are still learning the facts, along with everyone else. We certainly do not take this news lightly and will let our patrons know about its effects on Keillor’s March 17 scheduled appearance at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center as soon as possible.
