Statement from Minister of Tourism and Culture Robert Henderson on the awarding of the Nobel Prize for literature
Tourism and Culture
Ms. Munro’s contribution to the Canadian literary landscape is immeasurable and she is most deserving of this tremendous achievement.
In celebration of this prestigious honour, public libraries across the province will prominently feature Ms. Munro’s works in the coming weeks including hard copies of her short story collections, audio books and movies based on her work.
I invite all Islanders to celebrate Alice Munro and her contribution to Canadian culture.
