Speaker's Book Award

We just recieved some interesting information on the Speaker's Book award from our local MPP Timiskaming Cochrane John Vanthof.

If anyone is interested in entring their book we have more information here in the store. I will also post the link below.

About the Award

The Speaker’s Book Award recognizes works by Ontario authors reflecting the diverse culture and rich history of the province and of its residents. Topics include the history of the province and its many communities; prominent figures in Ontario from various fields including, but not limited to, politics, culture, arts, education and business; the history and achievements of women and minorities in Ontario; and the development of Ontario’s parliamentary system. Fiction and non-fiction submissions are welcomed in either English or French.

Special consideration is given to works focusing on Ontario’s parliamentary heritage and on provincial political discourse.

The winner will be the Speaker’s special guest at an Awards Reception to be held at the Ontario Legislature in the spring of 2013. The winning book will be featured at the Legislative Gift Shop and in the Legislative Library.
