The Golden Oak Award is part of the Ontario Library Association’s Forest of Reading program of readers’ choice awards for kids’ books. The Golden Oak Award is for kids’ books that also cross over to adult literacy learners, or for books that were written for adult learners. Out of this year’s Golden Oak Award nominees, Home Invasion is the only book actually written for adult readers.
The winners of the Golden Oak Award are chosen by adult learners. The Golden Oak Award winner will be announced at the Metro Toronto Movement for Literacy’s adult learner conference in June 2013.
As well as being a Good Reads author, Joy Fielding is one of ABC’s Life Literacy Ambassadors.
