By Lydia Barsawme

What a few days we've had, the school is finally filled with smiling students and the IEGS school year is not off to a start!

The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2020 is awarded to an American poet, Louise Glück.

The motivation from the Swedish Academy reads:  “for her unmistakable poetic voice that with austere beauty makes individual existence universal”. 

Books with poems by Louise Glück are on the way to the library and hopefully available for borrowing before autumn break.
