Bob Dylan will finally collect Nobel Prize

Bob Dylan will finally collect Nobel Prize
In October 2016 Bob Dylan won the Novel Prize for Literature, but he hasn’t collected it and send some friends to the ceremony. Now, he doesn’t have to collect it, but he doesn’t get the $900,000 prize if he doesn’t give a lecture…
Well, the Academy now has some news: The good news is that the Swedish Academy and Bob Dylan have decided to meet this weekend… The Academy will then hand over Dylan's Nobel diploma and the Nobel medal, and congratulate him on the Nobel Prize in Literature… The setting will be small and intimate, and no media will be present; only Bob Dylan and members of the Academy will attend, all according to Dylan's wishes."
As for the lecture, Bob is going to tape one and send it in. If that sounds like rock star demands, previous winners have taped their lecture, so there’s precedent. Looks like Bob was waiting for the dust to settle.
