While promoting his latest book Pilgrims, on the campus of Agnes Scott College on September 28, Garrison Keillor brought along he usual dry high brow wit.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Keillor know for describing the antics of his beloved Lake Wobegone a fictional town in his native Minnesota began by sharing his recent near death stroke experience.
In red slightly worn tennis shoes, red tie, and comfortable jeans, Keillor was running errands and went to find a nice fried taste of goodness. Then he suddenly felt something was wrong, his words did not come out and his mouth felt like numb. Driving himself to the hospital, he walked in and was diagnosed that he had a stroke.
In the "living coffin experience", within the MRI he was told to sit still and then congratulated him as if lying still was a skill. This experience made him face death and realize that after dying the ride in the hearse to the cemetery is one's last car ride.
Ending with an acappella version of "just can't help but falling in love", the audience joined as this master story teller brought the audience together in song.
