Words of the Week: American Library Association

“Susan Kusel was selected to receive the 2023 American Library Association (ALA) Equality Award. The award consists of $1000, and a framed citation will be presented on Sunday, June 25, 2023, at the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago, IL.

Susan tirelessly educates fellow librarians, adjacent professionals such as publishers and teachers, and the general public about Judaic literature, Jewish equity concerns, and the dangers of antisemitism. She has initiated multiple projects to ensure quality in Jewish children’s literature and to promote these titles as ‘window books’ to help build bridges between the Jewish community and the wider world.”
