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.
