Read all about it, it being Garrison Keillor's new bookstore in St. Paul, MN, "Corner Books" opening on November 1. Although he intends to play an active role in the store, Keillor isn't planning on leaving the shores of Lake Wobegon. "His first dedication is to A Prairie Home Companion," said Chris Livingston, who is coordinating the opening of the store.
Keiller found his new manager, Sue Zumberge, through an ad in craigslist. Zumberge says of the store, "It's going to be great," she said. "From my conversation with Mr. Keillor, it sounds like it's going to have a real Midwest flavor. There will be a wide selection of fiction, with a concentration of Midwest writers. It will really have the flavor of a neighborhood bookstore."
