The Swedish Academy is discussing whether to cancel the 2018 Nobel prize in literature, following a string of sexual assault allegations. A decision is expected on 3 May.

At their weekly meeting on 26 April, the 11 remaining members of the committee debated the question. “The Swedish Academy yesterday discussed the Nobel prize and came to no decision,” Per Wästberg, who heads the four-person panel that awards the prize, told the Guardian following the meeting.

“After our next Thursday meeting there will most probably be a statement on whether we will award a prize this year or reserve it for next year, in which case two prizes for literature will be announced in October 2019.”

This whole situation is a huge deal, and the repercussions will be really interesting to see play out.

Christie’s mother didn’t want her to learn to read until she was eight-years-old — even though she was a lover of stories herself. But, homeschooled by her father and bored in the interim hours, Christie taught herself to read by the time she was only five. Clearly an early book lover.
