UCSB Arts & Lectures Presents ‘An Afternoon with Garrison Keillor’ at Granada

UCSB Arts & Lectures presents "An Afternoon with Garrison Keillor" at 3 p.m. Jan. 22 at The Granada Theatre.

Presigned books will be available for purchase at the event.

Beloved for his unique blend of comedy, charisma and wisdom, writer and humorist Keillor will deliver insight and stories from his journey as one of America’s greatest storytellers.

Keillor is best known for his popular live radio variety show, "A Prairie Home Companion," which attracted more than 4 million listeners each week before he stepped down as host in June.

The program’s staunch admirers included filmmaker Robert Altman, whose critically-acclaimed film adaptation featured Keillor playing himself, alongside a cast that included Meryl Streep, Lily Tomlin and Kevin Kline. Keillor’s final episode was broadcast live from the Hollywood Bowl, before he passed the baton to Chris Thile.

Keillor remains an unforgettable voice on the radio as the host of the daily program "The Writer’s Almanac." He is the author of more than two dozen books, including "Lake Wobegon Days," "The Book of Guys," "Pilgrims," "Guy Noir and the Straight Skinny" and "Homegrown Democrat." His most recent of several poetry anthologies is "Good Poems: American Places."

With a wonderful, dry sense of humor, the beloved former host of "A Prairie Home Companion" will share hilarious anecdotes about growing up in the American Midwest, the people of Lake Wobegon and late-life fatherhood.

Keillor is the recipient of Grammy, ACE and George Foster Peabody awards and the National Humanities Medal, and has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

"An Afternoon with Garrison Keillor" is presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures.

Tickets are $35 to $55 for the general public and $15 for UCSB students (valid student ID required). A Granada facility fee will be added to each ticket price.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
