Canadian authors read Alice Munro


Canada's literary world is buzzing with excitement after the news broke that short story author Alice Munro 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, Joseph Boyden and Lisa Moore to read their favourite excerpts from Munro's work.
