Of the 117 writers who have been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, only 16 have been women. This small cadre stands out for their artistry, their contribution to the culture of their own countries, and for the universality of the themes and insights they convey with their work. Mr. Weibezahl’s course will survey the lives and accomplishments of all these remarkable women—from Sweden’s Selma Lageröf in 1909 to the most recent recipient of the award, U.S. poet Louise Glück in 2020. Along the way he’ll pause to savor the work of such masters as Toni Morrison, Nadine Gordimer, Alice Munro, Doris Lessing, Pearl Buck and many more. It’s an array of talent not to be missed. Join OLLI and Mr. Weibezahl to enjoy it.
