Though he will not be attending the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony on Saturday, legendary singer-songwriter Bob Dylan’s words will still be heard. The recipient of the Nobel Prize In Literature has reportedly penned an acceptance speech that will be read during the December 10 event in Stockholm, Sweden.

Dylan is the first American to be awarded the prestigious Nobel Prize In Literature since Toni Morrison was given the honor in 1993. The Nobel Prize committee praised the 75-year-old iconic folk musician “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.”

Fellow musician and acclaimed writer Patti Smith will be at the Stockholm Concert Hall on Saturday to perform Dylan’s well-known composition “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.”
