2016 Nobel Prize Winner announced!

The 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature winner has been announced! This year, the prize goes to Bob Dylan. The American singer-songwriter was so honored "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition".

Congratulations to Mr. Dylan! I have to admit, I never would have guessed he'd be an Nobel winner, although I grew up with his songs in the background of my childhood because my father was a fan of Dylan's early work. It seems so outside of the box - but not in a bad way. I'm quite pleased.
