Alice Munro wins 2013 Nobel Prize for literature

Canadian writer Alice Munro has won this year’s Nobel Prize for literature. Announcing the award in Stockholm, the Swedish Academy said that Ms. Munro was a “master of the contemporary shorAlice Munrot story.” Now 82, Ms. Munro has said that she would most likely retire having completed her 14th short story collection, Dear Life.  In today’s NY Times article, she said she was amazed and very grateful, adding, “I’m particularly glad that winning this award will please so many Canadians. I’m happy, too, that this will bring more attention to Canadian writing.” To see all of Munro’s work at the library visit the EPL website.
