National Jewish Book Awards

2012 National Jewish Book Award Winners Announced….


Mazel tov! The Jewish Book Council has announced the 2012 winners of the National Jewish Book Awards.

Two quick comments:

One – Interesting that one of kids books (When the Hurricane Came) is a self published work.  What does it mean? Not sure. It is not earth shattering news but worthy of attention. I did have a client win a National Jewish Book Award a number of years ago  and I was shocked (the book was very good, but was far from confident a self published book would be considered). I was sure they were going to call me and say a mistake had been made.

Two – It seems so logical that the Koren Talmud would win something. How could it not?
