Canadian authors telling Canadian stories; that's what we love. So naturally, we're thrilled to have a total of five books recognized on the Speaker’s Book Award shortlist. From biographies to current events, these are books that celebrate Ontarians making their mark in this province. Nominees for the Speaker’s Book Award include:

October 20, 2016 ― The woman who led the successful national campaign to have women depicted on Canadian money has been awarded the 2016 Governor General’s History Award for Popular Media (Pierre Berton Award). Merna Forster’s campaign resulted in a petition of more than 73,000 names and a commitment from the prime minister to feature a woman from Canadian history on bank notes in 2018.

We are delighted to announce that Myles and the Monster Outside by Toronto author Philippa Dowding and illustrator Shawn Daigle has been nominated for the Silver Birch Express Award, part of the Ontario Library Association’s annual Forest of Reading program.

Roberts has won the 2016 Alison Prentice Award presented by the Ontario Historical Society for Cracked: How Telephone Operators Took on Canada’s Largest Corporation ... And Won.
