 Alice Munro's Nobel Prize

Robert Thacker
 Charles A. Dana Professor of Canadian Studies and English

October 14, 2014
7:00 - 8:30 p.m. ET

When the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature was awarded to Alice Munro last fall, some were surprised because she writes short stories and is not especially political. Even so, Munro had been mentioned for the prize for some time and, many commentators agreed, her selection was the most popular one ever. Beginning with the Nobel, Dr. Thacker who began working on Munro’s fiction himself in 1973 and has written extensively on it and on Munro herself (Alice Munro: Writing Her Lives) will discuss a range of her stories and try to articulate the central qualities that have made her the singular artist she is.
