Publisher's Summary

"It's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, my hometown...." Garrison Keillor first did his monologue in 1974 to an audience of 20 in a St. Paul theater. Today, more than 2.2 million people tune in each week to hear the tall tales and sweet stories about the citizens of this small Minnesota town. It's a town where "the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and all of the children are above average." Keillor's monologues capture the nuances of country life and of growing up American with eloquence and subtle humor - the luxury of rhubarb pie, the Krebsbachs' thrifty vacation, the vapor lights of Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility. Step into "the little town that time forgot" and you'll forget it's not your own town, yet feel so close to home.

Response to whole show question

As a consumer, I agree that the whole show is the prefered format - who wouldn't like to hear everything while out on a walk? But as an employee, I'm sorry to say we can't make all the content available via Audible b/c we have not been given the rights to do so from the other guests/musicians.

Slightly dissapointed.

The first thing I ever did when I met my wife for the first time, was to share my whole ENTIRE CD collection of these Lake Wobegon Monologues with her father. Shortly after that we were married :)
I am rather dissapointed that I was charged a WHOLE Subscription credit for 15 minutes. I would be glad to get 4 for one credit, or even three, but ONE 15 minute session is unacceptable.
