Garrison Keillor Plans To Keep Working

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.
