Received via email (from two sources!) this morning:
The Sydney Taylor Book Award committee is gearing up for its deliberations to choose the best Jewish kidlit published in the past year. Winners will be announced in January, 2011, and there will be a blog tour for medal-winning authors/illustrators in February! If you’re interested in interviewing a winner and hosting a stop on the blog tour, please let us know! We are trying to be efficient and plan ahead, even though we don’t yet know who the winners will be.
If you’d like to participate, please email Barbara Krasner at barbarakrasner(at)att(dot)net and CC Heidi Estrin at Heidi(at)cbiboca(dot)org.
As a reminder, here’s some background on the Sydney Taylor Book Award.
