A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor

Pontoon Book Tour

Hot off the press (so to speak), here is the skinny on Garrison Keillor's cross-country book tour for the much-anticipated new Lake Wobegon novel, Pontoon. The book is on shelves now, and Garrison will "launch" Pontoon in St. Paul and then embark on a 14-city cross-country tour.
