Thanks so much to all the bloggers, authors, illustrators and readers who participated in our first-ever Sydney Taylor Book Award Blog Tour! It went so well that we're considering doing another tour for the 2009 Notable Book authors and illustrators. Please let us know if you'd like that by posting a comment.
In the meantime, here is an interview from The Book of Life podcast with Sydney Taylor Book Award committee chair, Kathe Pinchuck. Kathe shares her experience and insight on the process of selecting winners, and on trends in publishing. Enjoy!
