Dy­lan will re­ceive his No­bel Prize while on tour in Swe­den

Austin American-Statesman - - MORE OF TODAY’S TOP NEWS -

After months of sus­pense and typ­i­cally in­scrutable stand­off- ish­ness, Bob Dy­lan, the elu­sive No­bel lau­re­ate, will fi­nally ac­cept his lit­er­a­ture prize at a meet- ing with mem­bers of the Swedish Academy in Stockholm this week­end.

Sara Da­nius, the Swedish Acad- emy’s per­ma­nent sec­re­tary, broke the news Wed­nes­day in a blog post ti­tled “Good News About Dy­lan,” and a spokes­woman for the Academy con­firmed it.

Da­nius wrote that Dy­lan — who greeted news of the prize last fall with two weeks of si­lence and skipped the De­cem­ber cer­e­mony

be­cause of “pre-ex­ist­ing com­mit­ments” — would meet with mem­bers of the Academy while in town to play two con­certs at the Stockholm Wa­ter­front.
