Author Bio
Garrison Keillor
Gary Edward (later Garrison) Keillor was born in 1942 in Anoka, Minnesota, into a family that adhered to a fundamentalist Christian sect, the Plymouth Brethren--and had a childhood he describes as "very happy." He attended the University of Minnesota, receiving his B. A. in 1966, and did graduate work from 1966 to 1968. In 1965, Keillor married Mary C. Guntzel. They had a son, Jason; they were divorced in 1976. A devotee of the Grand Ole Opry, Keillor began hosting "A Prairie Home Companion" on Minnesota Public Radio, and soon the show went national. He was greatly influenced by relatives who gave "long, meandering talks" at family gatherings. As his success grew, and the books inspired by his show lingered on the bestseller lists, Keillor grew more and more ambivalent about celebrity and losing touch with his Midwestern roots. He detested the onslaught of shopping malls and encroaching urbanization of his hometown. He shocked his following in 1984 when he closed "A Prairie Home Companion." He moved to Denmark in 1987 with his second wife, but eventually returned to the U.S. (until 1992 he was a staff writer at The New Yorker), where after another divorce he married wife number three, a violinist.
