As I have perhaps mentioned before, our hometown prodigy Garrison Keillor has recently opened a bookstore in Saint Paul in the Blair Arcade. The name of the store is "Common Good Books."
In the interest of supporting local bookstores -- to be more precise, in my excitement at once more having a local bookstore -- I am passing along the following item:
This Saturday, the 18th, Common Good Books is having an open house in the Blair Arcade from noon to five. There will be a string quartet, soup, tea and a chance to meet the prop. himself (warning: he's a big fucker, the Shaquille O'Neal of the literati as it were).
So stop by if you're a Twin Citian. Maybe I'll see you there. And Garrison, if you google yourself and / or your bookstore, I'm a good writer (said in my best plaintive Dustin Hoffman Rainman voice).
