Award Winners: Nobel Prize in Literature

Features titles of award winners such as the Newbery, Caldecott, and Coretta Scott King awards. Also includes the call number if the Vise Library owns a particular item.

What is the Nobel Prize in Literature?

The Nobel Prize in Literature is awarded each year to a person who has "produced in the field of literature the most outstanding work in an ideal direction." The history of  this literature prize reflects the "changing sensibility" of the decision committee charged with choosing the award recipient, as they strive to follow the relatively vague guidelines left by Alfred Nobel. --https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/themes/the-nobel-prize-in-literature-3
