Blog Tour 2012 – Sydney Taylor Book Award Tour

It’s time for the 2012 Blog Tour for The Sydney Taylor Book Awards! As you may remember, last year, Tea Cozy was part of the blog tour, with an interview with Dana Reinhardt, author of The Things A Brother Knows.

I’m happy to say that once again, Tea Cozy is part of the Blog Tour!

Full information on the Book Awards and the Blog Tour may be found at The People of the Books blog (the Association of Jewish Libraries blog); more information on the award is at the Association of Jewish Libraries, at the Sydney Taylor Book Awards site.

The Blog Tour will be celebrating and showcasing the 2012 gold and silver medalists, as well as a few selected Notables with a Blog Tour, February 5-10, 2012. This virtual book tour will take place on Jewish and kidlit blogs. So, on the day below, just go over to that blog to read the interview with the author or illustrator.

Later this spring, there will be 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. Remember — we all love comments!
