Best of AOT: Garrison Keillor Serenades the Tattered Cover Audience
Garrison Keillor, founder and host of the acclaimed radio show A Prairie Home Companion and the daily program The Writer’s Almanac, has become the voice of the American midwest, or at least the voice that brings us back to the idyllic midwest of days past. While on tour for his Lake Wobegon novel Pontoon, Keillor visited the Tattered Cover book store, bringing with him his favorite cowboy songs, recalling the old west instead.
During the choruses of the classic tune “Get Along Little Doggies,” Keillor even got the Tattered Cover crowd to sing along, a moment that won’t soon be forgotten by those in attendance.
