Alice Munro has been announced as the winner of the third Man Booker International Prize and the judging panel will be at Trinity College Dublin to discuss how they came to their decision.
The judging panel for the Man Booker International Prize 2009 is: Jane Smiley, writer; Amit Chaudhuri, writer, academic and musician; and writer, film script writer and essayist, Andrey Kurkov. The three judges will be discussing the reasons for their choice and taking questions from the audience. The discussion will be chaired by award-winning author Colm Toibin, who was a judge for the 2007 Man Booker International Prize.
The panel made the following comment on the winner:
“Alice Munro is mostly known as a short story writer and yet she brings as much depth, wisdom and precision to every story as most novelists bring to a lifetime of novels. To read Alice Munro is to learn something every time that you never thought of before.”
NOTE: The winner will not be present at this discussion
