ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - 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.
