The Golden Eagle Book Award is a relatively new literary award given annually to an Alberta writer whose book is selected by children in Grades 4 through 7 from schools in the southern Alberta communities of Claresholm, Nanton, Stavely, Granum, Fort Macleod, Pincher Creek and Lundbreck. The other nominees were also SF or fantasy: Shadows of Disaster by Cathy Beveridge (a time travel story) and Turning Time by Linda Smith (a fantasy).
"They had me and the other two finalists up for two days of school readings before the winner was announced at a gala," reports Nicole. "A wonderful experience!"
