Susan Kusel and Rebecca Levitan join today on behalf of the SYDNEY TAYLOR BOOK AWARD, presented annually to outstanding books for children and teens that authentically portray the Jewish experience. The two joined me to talk about the award, what’s it’s like to serve on a Youth Media Awards committee, and trying to change conversations around Jewish literature through the work done during committee tenure.
