Every Saturday, Garrison Keillor takes the stage and shares stories of the people and events of his hometown, Lake Wobegon, Minnesota.
A while back, we invited listeners to send us a short story or a poem about their homes for a feature called "Stories from Home." We're resurrecting this feature, but we're calling it "first person" a place for you to give us your stories, poems, or short fiction.
