After 42 years of hosting A Prairie Home Companion, NPR veteran Garrison Keillor decided to retire from the show, but that hasn’t stopped him from entertaining his fans. Courtesy of the Houston Symphony, the velvet-voiced narrator will grace Houstonians with stories that Lesley Sabol, the symphony’s director of popular programming, says people will enjoy because “he’s such an amazing storyteller. He’s a modern-day Mark Twain in my opinion. He’s just brilliant.” In an ad to fans, Keillor says he’s “heading off to Houston, telling stories about Lake Wobegon in MN, the little town that time forgot…Not the end of the world, but you can see it from there.” This one is a sure sell-out, and be sure to look for Keillor’s signature red Converse sneakers.

7:30 p.m. Monday. Cullen Performance Hall, University of Houston, 4800 Calhoun. For information, call 713-224-7575 or visit houstonsymphony.org. $35 to $149.
