Nancye Tuttle of the SUN broke the news on June 10 that Lowell Memorial Auditorium will present writer, radioman extraordinaire, and poetry enthusiast Garrison Keillor on March 6, 2011. As far as I can recall Keillor has never played Lowell or the Merrimack Valley, so that’s a great get. Let’s be sure Garrison gets a guided tour of the Kerouac Commemorative and other Kerouac places in Lowell when he visits because we want him to talk about Lowell’s literary heritage on his radio program and spread the word in other ways.
Coming up at the LMA are Monty Python’s Spamalot, the Cast of Deadliest Catch Live, animal expert Jack Hanna, Loretta LaRoche, the Boston Pops Holiday Concert on Dec. 19, the Pink Floyd Experience, and much more.
