Keillor has no plans to retire anytime soon

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Humorist Garrison Keillor turns 72 in August, but the creator and host of ``A Prairie Home Companion'' has no plans to retire anytime soon. Keillor has a new book out, a collection spanning his decades as storyteller, novelist and radio show host.

This summer he celebrates the 40th anniversary of ``A Prairie Home Companion.'' But the curmudgeonly creator of Lake Wobegon, the quirky Minnesota town where --well, you know the rest --insists he didn't want to mark either milestone, because he's not done writing and working. Keillor is hitting the road for a 32-city tour to promote ``The Keillor Reader,'' a collection spanning his decades as storyteller, novelist and radio show host.

And he has a celebration of the anniversary of his public radio variety show in July.
