Wow – this is exciting! YM Books’ debut novel, One is Not a Lonely Number, by Evelyn Krieger, has won a silver medal for older readers in the Sydney Taylor Book Award! The award honors new books for children and teens that exemplify the highest literary standards while authentically portraying the Jewish experience. The award memorializes Sydney Taylor, author of the classic All-of-a-Kind Family series. The winners in each category will receive their awards at the Association of Jewish Libraries convention in Montreal this June. A blog tour, featuring interviews with winning authors and illustrators, will take place in early February, with participation from a wide range of children’s literature, family interest, and Jewish blogs. The blog tour schedule will appear on the Association of Jewish Libraries’ blog “People of the Books” at www.JewishLibraries.org/blog.
