The 2009 Sydney Taylor Book Awards


As readers of The Book of Life's blog know, the 2009 winners of the Sydney Taylor Book Awards were announced a few weeks ago. We participated in the award's Blog Tour by interviewing silver medalist Aranka Siegal, author of Memories of Babi. Now we bring you an audio interview with Kathe Pinchuck, chair of the awards committee, to give you a sneak peak into the inner workings of the Sydney Taylor Book Award.

Lovely interview. Thanks Heidi and Kathe! I love the symbolism of the bridge that connects all these wonderful books together.
