Svetlana Alexievich receives 2015 Nobel Prize for Literature

October 8, 2015

Svetlana Alexievich, a journalist from Belarus was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature today. She is known for her collections of oral history.  Two titles are available in English. We own Voices from Chernobyl: the oral history of a nuclear disaster.  I am buying more copies.  I am purchasing Zinky boys: Soviet voices from the Afghanistan War.  We will watch to see if her other books are issued in English.

<p>BBC America has a good article on Alexievich.
