Chatting with Kathe

Here are some notes and pics from Kathe Pinchuk.  We're having lots of quality time at the airport while waiting for our re-scheduled fligths.

Clever "Mirka" brought her knitting to keep herself amused, while this sad blogger/quilter forgot all her projects at home.



Jo Taylor Marshall, daughter of Sydney Taylor and sponsor the the Sydney Taylor book awards, attended the conference and shared a few stories about her mother.  She mentioned that the character Sarah in the books was based on her mother. Since it was difficult for women to get published, her mother wrote under the name "Sydney".  Jo still get letters addressed to "Mr. Taylor"



Mirka and STBA winner Barry Deutsch accept the award for older readers for his book  Hereville



The award winners, honorable mentions, Jo Taylor Marshall, and committee members.

Soooo sorry I missed the Convention and a chance to thank Jo Taylor Marshall in person for her support of the Sydney Taylor Awards, including the Manuscript Award. I know that Susan Ross, this year's winning author, would have been thrilled, too.
