Mid-Week Field Notes–February 1, 2023

Field Notes

Some very quick things:

  • Mazel tov to all the winners of the Sydney Taylor Book Awards from the Association of Jewish Libraries. You can see the list here and follow the blog tour to learn more about the authors, illustrators, and their books here. The Whole Megillah will be participating in the blog tour, interviewing middle-grade author Meira Drazin, whose Honey and Me earned an Honor. Stay tuned.
  • My own book, Ethel’s Song: Ethel Rosenberg’s Life in Poems (Calkins Creek/Astra Books for Young Readers, 2022) earned a Sydney Taylor Notable. I am grateful.
  • Rejections came in this week from two poetry literary magazines. Sigh.

Have a good week!
