Sydney Taylor Book Award Blog Tour

The 2010 Sydney Taylor Book Award Winners go on blog tour! Check out the Award's blog for more information. Not only is this a way to find out about great Jewish children's and teen books; it's a great way to find out about new-to-you bloggers.

From the Press Release:

Gold & Silver Medalists Go on Virtual Tour

The Sydney Taylor Book Award will be celebrating and showcasing its 2010 gold and silver medalists and special Notable Book for All Ages with a Blog Tour, February 1-5, 2010. A blog tour is like a virtual book tour. Instead of going to a library or bookstore to see an author speak, you go to a website on or after the advertised date to read an author's interview.

The full schedule for the Blog Tour is posted at the Association of Jewish Libraries blog, "People of the Books," at jewishlibraries.org/blog.

Visit these blogs on or after the listed dates to read interviews with our authors and illustrators!
