Nobel winner to miss awards

– The Swedish Academy says the winner of the Nobel Prize in literature, Alice Munro, won’t travel to Stockholm to collect her award because of poor health.

Academy secretary Peter Englund said Friday that the 82-year-old Canadian writer had declined the invitation. He said it’s not yet clear who will represent her at the Dec. 10 award ceremony.

The academy announced last week that Munro had won the $1.2 million prize for this year, calling her a “master of the contemporary short story.”

Munro has published more than a dozen collections of short stories since the 1960s, often focusing on the lives of girls and women from the towns and farming communities in her home region of southwestern Ontario.
