The Ezra Jack Keats Awards are presented annually by the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation and the New York Public Library to new authors and illustrators of picture books/illustrated books for children ages 9 and under.  I had the pleasure to attend last year when the stirring Most Loved In All The World and the graphic and delightful Only A Witch Can Fly won.

The extremely distinguished panel of children’s art and literature experts includes:

  • Deborah Pope, Executive Director Ezra Jack Keats Foundation
  • Miriam Lang Budin, Chappaqua Public Library, 2008-2009 EJK Award Chair
  • Nina Crews, Children’s book author and illustrator
