Garrison Keillor’s Ode to New York

Feb 1, 2016

As Garrison Keillor prepares to say goodbye to “A Prairie Home Companion,” he returns to 92Y to share poems, songs and stories of his long love affair with New York City — from his first trip to Manhattan as a boy, to his first publication in The New Yorker as a young writer, to his decision to move here in the late 1980s. “The show and I are identified with a small town in Minnesota,” Keillor has said, “but in real life New York is the place I feel at home.”
