When Canadian author Alice Munro was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2013, the presenter described her short stories thus:  They are….a world of silences and lies, waiting and longing.  We will read many of her stories and learn why she is a literary legend.  We will discover her Canadian essence and come to know her extraordinary talent.

GROUP LEADER:  Marcia Tannenbaum lived in rural Quebec and Ottawa, Ontario from 1981-1986, during which time she developed a deep respect for and appreciation of Canadian literature, the CBC and Winter.  She recently offered a course introducing Canadian literature and culture.
