Life these days in Lake Wobegon means shirtsleeve autumns and late-starting winters. Meanwhile, a bus full of Lutheran men attends the Risk Takers convention in Minneapolis to do the unthinkable: express their emotions. Pastor Ingqvist interviews for a job at the Mall of America. The Ingqvists’ elderly dog discovers the fountain of youth. The website for the World’s Largest Pile of Burlap Bags (www.wlpbb) opens a window on Lake Wobegon to the world.

And as a special bonus, Life These Days includes a never-before-available Keillor short story, “Spring.”
