Garrison Keillor's talk at the Aspen Institute's Writer's Conference

 I came across a recent posting on YouTube.com of a talk by America's modern-day Mark Twain, Garrison Keillor, given at the annual Summer Soirée of the Aspen Words Writer's Conference in Aspen, Colorado. Keillor presented  on June 24, 2015. It's an excellent example of Keillor's monologue work and he also offers some tips and inspiration for all of us who think of ourselves as struggling writers. It's not a brief talk, Keillor speaks for almost an hour. Plenty of insights to Keillor's mind and lots of humor. If you like this, as I did, be sure to check YouTube for a number of excellent Keillor talks, interviews, and visits. Enjoy! To watch the video, click here

I recommend a recent Garrison Keillor book, particularly if you're "getting on in years," titled Cheerfulness. To find out more about it and order it if you like go to Amazon.
