A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

In the twenty-five years since Garrison Keillor first brought it to life, the rural Minnesota town of Lake Wobegon has become a national treasure. In this lavishly produced photography book, word and image combine to illuminate the real Minnesota town-life, landscapes, and people who inspired its creation.

Taking us on a tour of Stearns County, the Minnesota county he deems most "Wobegonic," Keillor meditates on the origins of the place where, as a young writer, he found the inspiration for his fiction and his radio show. As an artful evocation of Keillor's beloved invention, Richard Olsenius's elegantly composed black-and-white photographs of rural Minnesota capture the dignity of his subjects, the beauties of the landscape as well as the enduring values and eccentricities of the communities rooted there. Photographs of the high school homecoming court, the tidy, austere working farm, the cozy villages, and summer barbecue at the lake are a visual feast for Lake Wobegon devotees as well as a moving tribute for anyone who feels the emotional claim of rural America.

A unique collaboration featuring more than eighty photographs reproduced in duotone with extended captions written by Keillor, In Search of Lake Wobegon is a beautifully produced work for the millions of radio listeners and book lovers who want to visit Wobegon again and again.

Description de la librairie

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
