The Ontario Library Association has announced its shortlist for the 2012 Evergreen Award, which honours the best in Canadian fiction and non-fiction titles.

Selected by a committee of librarians, this year’s nominees are:

During the month of October, the general public is invited to vote for their favourite shortlisted book. The winner will be announced in November and the award presented at the OLA Conference in February 2013. Last year, Emma Donoghue took the Evergreen Award for Room (HarperCollins Canada).

    I think that it is important to note that the Evergreen program honours the best in fiction and non-fiction FOR ADULTS. This is not all-encompassing. The Forest of Reading program (of which the Evergreen list is one part) honours the best in fiction and non-fiction for children’s and young adult books as well. No single category claims a “best in Canadian fiction and non-fiction” status.
