27th Annual Ezra Jack Keats New Writer and New Illustrator Book Awards | Events
The Ezra Jack Keats Foundation in partnership with the de Grummond Children’s Literature Collection at The University of Southern Mississippi is currently accepting submissions from publishers for the 27th Annual Ezra Jack Keats New Writer and New Illustrator Book Awards (known collectively as the Ezra Jack Keats Book Award). Submissions will be accepted at any time during the year through Dec. 30, 2012.
“Since 1985, the Book Award has been given to an outstanding new writer and new illustrator of picture books for children who share Ezra’s values—the universal qualities of childhood and the multicultural nature of our world,” said Deborah Pope, Executive Director of The Ezra Jack Keats Foundation. “We encourage publishers to submit works by the next generation of talent who, like Ezra, ‘The Granddaddy of Diversity,’ are committed to celebrating diversity through their writing and art.”
