Bringing the multicultural, creative spirit of Ezra Jack Keats
into children's lives and literature
The 100th-birthday edition of the EJK Book Award was an extra-special occasion, as our ceremony highlightsshow. At USM, they sure know how to show people a good time.
Since then, we’ve redirected our focus to congratulating our Mini-Grant winners, and to the Bookmaking Awards and exhibitions coming up in NYC and Baltimore. Then, come June, we’re kicking off the summer with our Birthday Blowout Weekend in Prospect Park - read about it below.
All this activity is making our heads swim - in a good way! The response to Ezra’s birthday has been extraordinary, and we are so pleased.
As always, check our website often for updates of our year-long party!
