Congratulations to Jacqueline. In December 2016 she received the Order of Canada for her contributions as a children’s book author who promotes multiculturalism, youth literacy and Indigenous culture.
International award-winning author of nineteen novels, Jacqueline Guest has stood on an iceberg, flown a kite in a hurricane, worn bedroom slippers in Parliament and dodged hungry lions all while on the job as a writer! Her books are great reading for ages eight through eighty, with some titles used in university level courses. Her fast paced novels have topics that range from deadly video games to comic book superheroes and mysterious meteorites ensuring there is something for every reader! She has over twenty years of experience working with students of all ages and has taught reading and writing workshops across Canada, the US and as far off as Tanzania.
Her motto: READING ROCKS!
