The Association of Jewish Libraries held their convention in Montreal. What a wonderful city! The Sydney Taylor Book Award Committee had the opportunity to share some of our favorite books of the year and present this year's winners with their awards, including Howard Schwartz and Kristina Swarner for Gathering Sparks, Barry Deutsch for Hereville, and Dana Reinhardt for The Things a Brother Knows. We were honored to have Jo Taylor Marshall, the daughter of Sydney Taylor, join us for the celebration. She is pictured above with the committee.
