Some folks find Garrison Keillor to be an acquired taste (myself included, some of the time), but it isn't hard to fall into the mesmerizing drag of his dulcet tones. I remember when Keillor's powerful radio wizardry first truly overtook me: It was in the midst of a Guy Noir yarn spun as I was taking a road trip south on Highway 83. And whether or not you want to be reeled into his whole Lake Woebegone mythology hook, line and sinker, well, sometimes it just happens. Simple as that.

That's why the Boulder Book Store thinks big when Keillor comes to town to hawk a new book. Tonight at 6:30 p.m., the book dealer will present Lost and Found: Life and Liberty with Garrison Keillor in the more spacious quarters of Unity Church of Boulder, 2855 Folsom Street. There, the raconteur-turned-author will introduce his novel Liberty using his aforementioned baritone frequencies. Set foot in there, I'm warning you, and it might be like stepping through a gauntlet of thick, relentless glue that will never set you free. But here's the thing: For the $12 admission price (and another $25.95 for the book), you'll walk out the door again with a whole new outlook on the lifestyles of Lake Woebegone, Minnesota. Try it, you'll like it.
Tickets are available in advance at the Boulder Book Store, 2855 Folsom Avenue in Boulder. Get details at the website or call 303-447-2074.
