has been awarded this year's Nobel Prize in literature. The 82 year old is the first Canadian born-and-raised author to win the prize, and only the thirteenth woman to ever receive it. Some of Munro's best-known works include "Lives of Girls and Women
," "Who Do You Think You Are?
" and her latest collection is called "Dear Life
." To celebrate, Day 6 asked Canadian authors Vincent Lam
, Anne Michaels
