A Radio Voice, Red Shoes, and Poetry

I'm quite excited today, because after a long day of classes I get to see one of the most iconic radio voices of America, or at least the Midwest. Garrison Keillor, beloved host of The Prairie Home Companion, will be at Coffman Memorial Union on campus tonight! At the bookstore, he will be hosting tonight's poetry reading for the winners of the James Wright Prize for Poetry. While we aren't the most avid MPR listeners, Abby and I are anxious to see a radio legend. Plus, he is known for wearing red sneakers to every event, in any outfit. Pretty chic. 

Perhaps I could get his autograph? Or a cell phone picture - they are supposedly the autograph of the 21st Century.

I'm all about conversation over here, so what's on your mind?
