Rubin & Sharenow: 2012 Sydney Taylor Winners

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST    |    BUY MUSIC WAS IT / BERLIN BOXING CLUB      🕮    Next month the 2013 Sydney Taylor Book Award winners will be announced, but for now we are still celebrating the wonderful winners that were named in January 2012. At the Association of Jewish Libraries annual conference this summer, I did a joint interview with winners Susan Goldman Rubin ( Music Was It: Young Leonard Bernstein ) and Rob Sharenow ( The Berlin Boxing Club ). Both were charming and personable, a delight to speak with as they talked about the inspiration for and ties between their two books.
