Several Minnesota colleges will be getting a visit from Garrison Keillor.
According to the Star Tribune, the five cities in the tour were key to Keillor's early success. Like Moorhead, which was home of the very first Prairie Home road show.
Descriptions of the events say Keillor has "reached a certain age when you realize how lucky you are and you stop complaining." It goes on to explain that "complaint is a mainstay of comedy," so the retired radio show host will be experimenting with a comedy of gratitude, instead – "talking about parents, teachers, lucky breaks, dumb things that turned out smart."
This will be his first experimental tour. It's also in celebration of Minnesota Public Radio's 50th anniversary.
Between April 23-28, the storyteller will hit Duluth, Bemidji, St. Joseph, St. Peter and Moorhead.
