Garrison Keillor: Closing Speaker

June 28, 2007


Garrison Keillor was the speaker at the closing session. He talked about libraries and librarians for about 45 minutes and was delivered with his usual dry sense of humor. (cf. his article on libraries in Salon which touches on some of what he said to us.) This session was taped for broadcast on C-Span and the auditorium was packed. I was fortunate to be able to attend the Awards Ceremony and the Inaugural Banquet later that evening in support of Charles Kratz, the Dean of the Library at the University of Scranton, who is joining the ALA Executive Board. I saw Barbara Cole from Commonwealth Libraries and Debbie Malone, Library Director at DeSales University and Co-Chair of PaLA’s Legislative Information Committee.
