Fresh from a tour of the Mayo Clinic, Garrison Keiller will sign his new book, “Pilgrims,” today at the bookstore he owns in St. Paul.
The 1 p.m. signing is at Common Good Books, 165 Western Ave., in St. Paul’s Cathedral Hill district.
Keillor suffered a minor stroke on Labor Day and drove himself to a St. Paul hospital, before he was taken by ambulance to the Rochester clinic.
On his Facebook page, a fan asked why Keillor didn’t call an ambulance instead of driving himself.
The Mayor of St. Paul Chris Coleman said the same thing: “Next time let us drive you. Call 9 1 1.” I said, “Chris, you’re a smart guy and I’m going to vote for you.” He said, “Just in case, could you vote absentee.”
