Nobel Prize week starts October 3 and runs through October 10. The prize for literature is traditionally announced on Thursday, which makes October 6 the expected date for the award. The Swedish Academy will officially confirm that on October 3.

The National Book Awards will release their finalists on October 13, the same day that the Booker winner is selected in the UK -- but first the NBF will name the new group of 5 Under 35 honorees Thursday morning. With the Frankfurt Book Fair convening late this year, starting October 19, it will follow the major award announcements.

In other awards, Biographers International Organization will present their editorial excellence award to Nan A. Talese.

And in Canada, the Hilary Weston Writer's Trust Prize for nonfiction has
nominated six books from Penguin Random House Canada
