Alice Munro too ill to attend Nobel ceremony

The Canadian media is reporting that 82-year-old Alice Munro will not attend next month’s Nobel event in Stockholm due to her ill health. In other news, her publisher wants to turn Munro’s childhood home in Wingham, Ontario, into a tourist attraction.

Like other booksellers, AbeBooks enjoyed a significant Munro boost thanks to Alice’s win,  including the sale of signed first edition of her first short story collection, Dance of the Happy Shades, for $1,000 (about £6,100).
