I met Barry Deutsch, author of Hereville: How Mirka Got Her Sword, at Miami Book Fair International in November, 2010. Hereville is the 2011 winner of the Sydney Taylor Book Award in the Older Readers Category, the first graphic novel ever to win this prestigious literary prize. For the full list of 2011 prize winners, visit the Association of Jewish Libraries' blog "People of the Books."
