This month I'd like to introduce my friend and colleague, and always a first reader of my early drafts, Susan Krawitz, who recently won the Sidney Taylor Manuscript Award for her unpublished work, Viva Rose.
Since 1985, the Association of Jewish Libraries has been offering an annual $1,000 prize for a children’s book manuscript for ages 8-13 that presents Jewish life in a positive light. The award memorializes Sydney Taylor, author of the classic All-of-a-Kind Family series. The deadline for this year’s contest is September 30th.
