Two remarkable laureates, Esther Duflo and Olga Tokarczuk, celebrating their Nobel Prizes together in Stockholm, Sweden. Duflo is the youngest person to be awarded the Prize in Economic Sciences. She was awarded the prize in 2019. Tokarczuk was awarded the 2018 Literature Prize.
"As a child, I promised my mother I would win the Nobel Prize in Physics. 50 years later, I said to my mother, 'See, I have kept my promise. I won the Nobel Prize.' 'No,' said my mother, 'You promised it would be in physics!'" Happy birthday to Literature Laureate Kenzaburo Oe!
Remembering one of the world’s greatest poets, W.B. Yeats, who was awarded the 1923 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his always inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation."
Wishing a happy birthday to Mo Yan! Mo Yan was awarded the 2012 #NobelPrize in Literature for his writings in which he merges hallucinatory realism with folk tales, history and contemporary social issues. In the picture he is collecting his Nobel Prize medal.
An interesting sidelight on the margins of Literature Live’s recent launch of Nobel prize-winning couple Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo’s ‘Good Economics for Hard Times’ on Sunday at the Rendezvous was brought to our attention. @msangghvi
