On June 13, at 7:30 p.m., you can go hear Bill Moyers at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, where he will be in conversation with Garrison Keillor. Your $20 fee entitles you to $10 off the price of the book, which you can buy at Keillor's store, Common Good Books.
On June 9, at 7 p.m., you can go hear Bill Moyers at Plymouth Congregational Church in Minneapolis, where he will be introduced by Louise Erdrich. It's free, but the book is full-price, available from Erdrich's store, Birchbark Books.
The events should be entirely different--one a conversation, one more of a traditional lecture--and I think it would be fun to get to both. The Keillor conversation will highlight Moyers' new book, "Bill Moyers Journal: The Conversation Continues," a collection of interviews with nearly 50 notable people Moyers has talked with in the last five years.
Some of the names: biologist E. O. Wilson, historian Howard Zinn, economist Victor Greidel, writer Michael Pollan, Jane Goodall, Barbara Ehrenreich, Louise Erdrich ...
Aha. Louise Erdrich! Which brings us back to Minneapolis.

No tickets for the Plymouth Congregational Church event. Just try to get there early. (The church is on the corner of Nicollet and Franklin, and his talk is part of their Literary Witness Series, co-sponsored by the Loft Literary Center.)
