The Canadian writer Alice Munro couldn’t make it to Stockholm in December for the ceremony commemorating her Nobel Prize because of health concerns, but Munro will visit New York — virtually, anyway — later this month.
On Jan. 22, Symphony Space will devote a special edition of its Selected Shorts series to Munro, who will join the festivities via a Google+ Hangout to take part in a conversation with her friend and fellow author Margaret Atwood, New York Times said.
The event will also feature readings of Munro’s stories by the actors Holly Hunter and Amy Ryan and remarks about Munro and her work by Charles McGrath, a contributing writer for The New York Times, and Adam Gopnik, a staff writer at The New Yorker.
