Alice Munro’s out, Annie Proulx in at Toronto’s Luminato Festival

Organizers of Luminato, one of Toronto’s biggest cultural festivals, have announced that its high-profile event with CanLit icon Alice Munro has been cancelled, due to a “family commitment.”

Munro, who has not made an appearance on a public stage since a 2009 PEN Canada fundraiser at the International Festival of Authors, was to be interviewed by The New Yorker‘s fiction editor Deborah Treisman at an event on June 10. Instead, Treisman will chat with Pulitzer Prize“winning author Annie Proulx.
