Congratulations to the 2013 AJL Award Winners!
The Association of Jewish Libraries is proud to announce the winners of both the Sydney Taylor Manuscript Award and the Judaica Reference & Bibliography Awards. The Sydney Taylor Manuscript Award is given to the year's best fiction manuscript appropriate for readers ages 8-11 and written by an unpublished children's author. The book must be a work of fiction in English with Jewish content for readers aged 8 to 11 years, both Jewish and non-Jewish.
The AJL Judaica Reference Award, funded by Dr. Greta Silver of New York City, was established to encourage the publication of outstanding Judaica reference books. The AJL Judaica Bibliography Award, funded by Eric Chaim Kline of Los Angeles, was established to encourage the publication of outstanding Judaica bibliographies. The winners of all AJL’s literary awards, including the Sydney Taylor Book Awards announced earlier this year, will be honored at a banquet during the 48th annual conference of the Association of Jewish Libraries, June 16-19 in Houston, Texas. <Read more.>
