JEWISH BOOK ANNUAL
Council president, officiated. All the award-winning authors
were present except for Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, winner of
the Jewish Thought Award, and Shea Tennenbaum, winner of
the Yiddish Award. A buffet dinner was served in the Jewish Di­
vision for the donors of the awards, publishers’ representatives
and judges. This was followed by the formal program in the
Trustees Room, which in turn was followed by a reception in the
Library Rotunda. The use of this facility was again made possible
by a grant from the Henry J. and Edith Everett Foundation.
