Blog Tour 2012: The Sydney Taylor Book Award Interviews

The Sydney Taylor Book Award will be celebrating and showcasing its 2012 gold and silver medalists and a few selected Notables with a Blog Tour, February 5-10, 2012! Interviews with winning authors and illustrators will appear on a wide variety of Jewish and kidlit blogs. For those of you who have not yet experienced a Blog Tour, it's basically a virtual book tour. Instead of going to a library or bookstore to see an author or illustrator speak, you go to a website on or after the advertised date to read an author’s or illustrator's interview.

Later this spring, we'll follow up with an episode of Katie Davis's Brain Burps About Books devoted to the Sydney Taylor Book Award!

Below is the schedule for the 2012 Sydney Taylor Book Award Blog Tour. Please follow the links to visit the hosting blogs on or after their tour dates, and be sure to leave them plenty of comments!

Richard Michelson composed poetry for adults long before he wrote picture books for young readers. How does one art inform the other? See the answers on today's interview with Richard. www.bluethreadbook.com

This is a really interesting blog! I'd like to make one small suggestion to increase its informativeness: in each case, include the interviewer's name as well as the blog link. For example,

Gloria Spielman, author of Marcel Marceau, Master of Mime -- Sydney Taylor Notable Book, and finalist for the National Jewish Book Award -- interviewed by Shannon Hitchcock at Shannon and the Sunshine Band

Thanks!

Mike Feldman
