Congratulations to the authors whose works have been granted the 2014 Sydney Taylor Book Award! I had the opportunity to interview Robyn Bavati, who won the Sydney Taylor Honor Award in the Teen Readers category for Dancing in the Dark. Learn more about all of the celebrated authors and illustrators by following the blog tour throughout the month. Here's the schedule, as posted by Heidi at the AJL People of the Books blog:

The Sydney Taylor Book Award will be celebrating and showcasing its 2014 gold and silver medalists with a Blog Tour, February 16-20, 2014! Interviews with winning authors and illustrators will appear on a wide variety of Jewish and kidlit blogs. For those of you who have not yet experienced a Blog Tour, it’s basically a virtual book tour. Instead of going to a library or bookstore to see an author or illustrator speak, you go to a website on or after the advertised date to read an author's or illustrator's interview.

Below is the schedule for the 2014 Sydney Taylor Book Award Blog Tour. Please follow the links to visit the hosting blogs on or after their tour dates, and be sure to leave them plenty of comments!
