Alice Munro and Other Women Nobel Laureates in Literature

IRELAND BOOKER AWARDS

We extend our congratulations to Alice Munro for being awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature this year. To close out the day, we thought it would be good to look back on the other women who have been awarded this honor over the years. Head over to the Huffington Post for a great slideshow that does just that, which includes poets Herta Müller, Wisława Szymborska, Nelly Sachs, and Gabriela Mistral.
