Keillor reads a local poet

Local poet Jonathan Potter had a national airing today. Garrison Keillor read Potter's poem “You and I” on “The Writer's Almanac” on NPR this morning.

A few weeks ago, Potter sent Keillor his poetry volume, “House of Words,” published by Korrektiv Press, expecting … well, not much. What he got instead was a call asking permission to read a poem on the air,

Potter pronounced himself “giddy with gratitude, grateful with gidditude, and feeling slightly above average.” You can read what else Potter says about it here.
