Congratulations to Alice Munro!

Algonquin Reads is all about promoting Canadian literature and encouraging the love of reading. We also wish to bring people together across Algonquin College to enjoy books, discuss books and participate in activities together with people we may not otherwise meet.

So we were ecstatic to learn of Alice Munro winning the Nobel Prize of Literature, the first Canadian author to do so.  This is an exciting time for Canadian literature, for books and for reading.  Congratulations to Alice Munro!
