Thanks to the Jewish Book Council for taking note of the Sophie Brody Medal news in its latest JLit Links post! (By the way, for a response to the kidlit link included in that post, see The PJ Library.)
And speaking of kids’ books: Marjorie Ingall writes about Holocaust books for children.
And still more about Jewish kidlit: ‘Tis the season for the Sydney Taylor Book Award interviews. Get to know some award-winning authors and illustrators February 5-10.
The American Jewish Historical Society has redesigned its website. I hope to spend some time exploring it soon.
Finally, a reading rec from my mom. She just finished reading The Arrogant Years, the new memoir from Lucette Lagnado, and she LOVED it. I haven’t read it yet, but I did think Lagnado’s previous book, The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit, was pretty terrific.
