STBA Blog Tour: Meira Drazin on The Whole Megillah

In the early fall of 2016 I happened upon a goldmine of a blog for Jewish writing, including a list of awards and contests. I was astonished to find one for unpublished Jewish children’s novels and with the deadline only a few days away, I applied… and several months later found out that I’d won, which continues to reap rewards and set me on a path to becoming part of an amazing community of Jewish kid lit. Fast forward to 2023 and a bashert moment: as part of getting the silver medal for the Sydney Taylor Book Award, I was interviewed by Barbara Krasner for The Whole Megillah, *the very same blog*!!!!
