SHORT TAKES : Class Thanked for Seeing Error

</i>

Author Garrison Keillor has an English class at the University of North Dakota to thank for spotting a discrepancy in one of his stories published in New Yorker magazine.

Keillor thanked the class with a box full of his books and tapes of his radio show, and a letter inviting the class to dinner, his manager, Jennifer Howe, said Thursday from New York.

Lecturer Lisa Lewis-Spicer’s class wrote a letter two weeks ago asking Keillor to explain why a family suddenly grew from three to four kids in “Zeus the Lutheran,” a story that ran in the Oct. 29 issue.

He responded in a letter with the box of gifts that they should be commended for their close reading of his story, Lewis-Spicer said.
