To: G. Keillor
Greetings, Mr. Keillor, I've been a listener as long as you've been on the air and I think you're a great storyteller. One of the best, in fact. I was listening today to the literary birthday spot you do every day and would like to know which published work Sinclair Lewis won the Nobel prize for in 1930? You may be amused to know that my mother, as a six-year-old, had to sit on his lap once in 1930 and she remembers he smelled "funny" and his beard had scrambled eggs in it. He was visiting at their home as her father was a personal friend (of S.L.'s). Also, Will Durant's wife's name was "Ariel". Why didn't you say that? Thanks for being you, Nancy Goettsch
