Louise Glück

From the Library Blog - The Nobel Prize in Literature 2020

The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2020 is awarded to an American poet, Louise Glück.

The motivation from the Swedish Academy reads:  “for her unmistakable poetic voice that with austere beauty makes individual existence universal”. 

Books with poems by Louise Glück are on the way to the library and hopefully available for borrowing before autumn break.

Digital Ways to Read Books

It is not at all new, reading books online. 1999, when I did my GYAR project, the new thing was the Palm Pilot, a portable screen that almost looked like what a smartphone looks like now. The talk around town was that this was the new way to read books. My idea was to let friends write stories for a webpage from where you then could download the stories to your Palm Pilot. The project was not a success, since the Palm Pilot was too expensive for anyone I knew to buy.
