The CJM, the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation, the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD), and the San Francisco Public Library (SFPL) present the eleventh year of the Ezra Jack Keats Bookmaking Project.
The project promotes the art and craft of original bookmaking in the classroom, and invites SFUSD students in grades K–12 to design, write, and assemble their own books. At the end of the project, participating students, families, and educators will be invited to The CJM for a celebration of books, where student books will be exhibited and participants will be honored!

Caldecott winner Ezra Jack Keats was the creator of over twenty children’s books, including the classic The Snowy Day. He was motivated to pursue a career as an author/illustrator as the result of an art achievement medal he received while attending public school in Brooklyn, New York.
Support for the Ezra Jack Keats Bookmaking Competition is provided by The Ezra Jack Keats Foundation, The Kimball Foundation, The Ullendorff Memorial Foundation, and Blick Art Materials and is presented in partnership with the San Francisco Unified School District and the San Francisco Public Library.
School and Teacher Programs are made possible by generous support from the California Arts Council, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Bavar Family Foundation, The Ullendorff Memorial Foundation, and Toole Family Charitable Foundation.
