The Sydney Taylor Book Award Tell-All, Part 1: Exploring the Criteria Used to Evaluate Books

Join us as we reveal the criteria used to evaluate books submitted to the Sydney Taylor Book Award committee. The positive merits of the winners, honors and notables will be discussed and we will divulge the exceptional qualities that made them worthy of distinction. Not only will you get insight into the work of the committee, but you can use the same criteria to evaluation books in your own collection. Practical tips to use STBA winners for programs will be shared and we will also point out books that did not measure up tot he standards of the STBA committee, but may be appropriate for individual library collections.

Presented by Aimee Lurie, Chair, and the Sydney Taylor Book Award committee members at the 2013 AJL Conference in Houston, TX
