    Hmm, can't get an exact date:

    "Alfred Nobel's will stated that Nobel Laureates in Literature should be those authors who have produced "in the field of literature the most outstanding work in an ideal direction". A fairly general directive, to be sure, which it is up to the Swedish Academy to interpret. Their decision on each year's Nobel Laureate is announced each year on a Thursday in late September or October. There can theoretically be more than one Literature Laureate, but this has only happened 4 times in 106 years of awards."

    The Nobel Foundation wishes to inform you that the Nobel Prize-Awarding Institutions have set the following dates for their announcement of the respective Nobel Laureates for 2007:
