On ATC: Debate recap, Keillor bookstore prospects
Posted at 2:11 PM on September 14, 2006 by Bill Wareham
On All Things Considered, Laura McCallum will recap the highlights of today's gubernatorial debate. This was the first time Peter Hutchinson, Mike Hatch and Tim Pawlenty appeared together, and so far no sequels have been scheduled.
ATC host Tom Crann talks to Claire Kirch, Midwest correspondent for Publishers Weekly, about what it will take for Garrison Keillor to succeed where so many others seem to be failing. Keillor plans to open an independent bookstore in the Cathedral Hill neighborhood in St. Paul, not too far from the former sites of Odegaard Books, Bound to Be Read and The Hungry Mind/Ruminator Books.
Tom also talks to violinist Joshua Bell, who has the top-selling classical album in the country right now (MPR classical music host Julie Amacher writes about the album Voice of the Violin in this week's Classical Tracks.) Bell performs with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra today through Saturday.
