Keillor celebrates bookstore's move in St. Paul

ST. PAUL — Garrison Keillor plans an above-average celebration of his bookstore's move in St. Paul.

The host of “A Prairie Home Companion” has scheduled a three-day grand opening of Common Good Books.

The celebration kicks off Tuesday at 7 p.m. with a Spring Poetry Free-for-All at Macalester College's Weyerhaeuser Chapel. Audience members can read aloud at an open mic, backed by a jazz trio.

On Wednesday evening, Keillor will be joined by “Prairie Home” actors Sue Scott and Tim Russell in reading from his new book, “Guy Noir and the Straight Skinny,” at Common Good Books.

Fans get to tell a story to Keillor on stage at Common Good Books on Thursday evening.

Keillor opened his bookstore in 2006. It's now open in the Lampert Building on Snelling Avenue.
