The Big Reveal: 2010 Sydney Taylor Book Awards

SHOW NOTES:

On January 11, I attended the midwinter council meeting of the Association of Jewish Libraries, where the winners of the 2010 Sydney Taylor Book Award for Jewish children's literature were officially announced.

They let me record the big reveal, which you'll hear first. Then I snuck Kathe Pinchuck, the awards chair, out of the meeting for a little while to talk about the books in detail. The full list of all award, honor, and notable Sydney Taylor books has been posted at bookoflifepodcast.com. I'll also post the schedule of the Sydney Taylor Book Award Blog Tour as soon as it becomes available. The blog tour will take place February 1-5, 2010, and home base for that event will be jewishlibraries.org/blog. Also, just wanted to let you know that this podcast is being cross-posted on the Association of Jewish Libraries podcast at jewishlibraries.org/podcast.

Mazel tov to all the authors, illustrators, editors, and publishers!
