    Garrison Keillor in “An Evening for Mexico” in St. Paul, MN, September 22

    Garrison Keillor, author, storyteller and creator of the Prairie Home Companion, will be performing “An Evening for Mexico,” Friday, September 22 at Bethel University’s Benson Great Hall in Arden Hills, Minn. 

    The performance begins at 7:00pm, and will feature stories about growing up in Minnesota, about Lake Wobegon, family and fatherhood.  Keillor has presented this show to capacity crowds across the U.S. over the past year.  This is his first and only scheduled performance of the show in the Twin Cities.   

    The event is a fundraiser for Juvenile Justice Advocates which works to reform the juvenile justice system worldwide.  All proceeds from the September 22 show will go towards its work in Mexico. 

    "We're putting on a benefit, which I promise will be fun,” said Keillor.  “You'll be in a crowd of people who will stand and sing all the songs we know by heart and sing them acapella in four-part harmony. That alone is worth your while, and you'll also have the satisfaction of doing a tangible good thing rather than just complaining about the world today, which is what I do.  But not on the 22nd.”

    Juvenile Justice Advocates was founded in 2013 by Garrison’s cousin and human rights attorney Douglas Keillor, who received a Fulbright-García Robles Fellowship to research excessive juvenile detention in Mexico City in 2012. As a result, the Mexico City Superior Court invited him to help implement a pretrial release program, which grew into Juvenile Justice Advocates.

    “There are 13,000 children currently in prison in Mexico, nearly half of whom have never been convicted of a crime,” said Douglas Keillor.  “They suffer tremendously and are twice as likely to commit suicide or drop out of school compared to kids in alternative programs. Three quarters are abused or beaten by officials.”  The proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards creating community-based alternatives to detention for vulnerable teens.   

    Reserved seating tickets to “Garrison Keillor in An Evening for Mexico” are $69 for main floor and $59 for the balcony.  Premium tickets at $159 include a reception next to Benson Great Hall before the show and an opportunity to meet Garrison Keillor.  Student tickets are available for $34-$44 with a current student ID.
