Three affiliates among OLA Forest of Reading winners

Wednesday, June 01, 2016

From May 17 to 19, Toronto’s Harbourfront hosted thousands of eager students for the Ontario Library Association (OLA)’s annual Festival of TreesTM.

The Festival is an opportunity for Canadian authors and students to connect through book signings, readings and the announcement of the winners of the OLA’s Forest of Reading® program.

This year, a quarter of a million students participated and voted in nine award categories with three of the prizes going to Access Copyright affiliates.

Allan Stratton won the Red MapleTM Awardfor The Dogs (Scholastic Canada) while Sharon McKay was selected as this year’s winner of the Silver Birch® Express Award for The End of the Line (Annick Press). Taking home the Silver Birch® Award for Non-Fiction is Joel A. Sutherland for Haunted Canada 5: Terrifying True Stories (Scholastic Canada).

A complete list of winners is available here.

Twitter is a great way to check all the action that was the 2016 Festival of Trees.

Partial funding for OLA’s Forest of Reading program is provided by the Access Copyright Foundation.
