Huge congratulations to Susan Lynn Meyer, whose Black Radishes is a Sydney Taylor Honor Book! Today is best recognized in children's publishing as the day the ALA Youth Media Awards were announced (and huge congratulations to all of the authors, illustrators, and others who had books honored there, as well!)--but also announced today were the Sydney Taylor Book Awards, which are administered by the Association of Jewish Libraries to recognize "new books for children and teens that exemplify the highest literary standards while authentically portraying the Jewish experience. The award memorializes Sydney Taylor, author of the classic All-of-a-Kind Family series. The winners will receive their awards at the Association of Jewish Libraries convention in Montreal this June."
