About the Event
Enjoy an evening of storytelling for adults with Kevin Kling.
Presented by: Kevin Kling
Kevin Kling, who grew up in Osseo, Minnesota, is well known to NPR listeners thanks to his regular storytelling on NPR's All Things Considered. Kevin has hopped freight trains, joined a circus, and eaten things before knowing what they were. His stories fall somewhere between Garrison Keillor's homespun humor and the mid-west quirkiness of the Coen brothers' movie Fargo. His childhood stories and observations touch upon universal human experiences, combined with irony and a sense of the absurd.
