Nobel Prize laureate Olga Tokarczuk in an exclusive interview for TVN24
"I was never afraid or backing out from commenting on things, to speak what I think, but I wouldn't like to change my role. Because writing is something incredibly introverted and lonely, essentially. And I wouldn't like this energy that I have, for instance for my unfinished book, to somehow disperse in the outer world," said Olga Tokarczuk, laureate of the Nobel Prize in Literature, in an interview for Katarzyna Kolenda-Zaleska. Asked how, in her view, literature could change the world, Olga Tokarczuk replied: "by provoking, by asking questions, and sometimes by being uncomfortable".
Olga Tokarczuk will receive the Nobel Prize on Tuesday from the hands of Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf at a formal ceremony with this year's other laureates. The ceremony will be followed by a gala banquet. THE CEREMONY OF HANDING THE NOBEL AWARD WILL BE BROADCASTED ON TVN24 AND TVN24.PL FROM 16.30.
