The Portland State University Library welcomes you to explore our collected holdings of the winners of the Nobel Prize for Literature. We want to call specific attention to the works of 1993 Nobel Prize winner, Toni Morrison. She was the first American woman to be honored with this award and is the only African American Woman to have received this honor. The PSU Library is extremely pleased to be able to provide access to a panel discussion featuring Toni Morrison that was recorded as part of the Oregon Public Speakers Collection from 1975. We would also like to note we have an extensive online collection of the poetic works of the current Nobel Prize winner for Literature, Louise Glück.
