Ezra Jack Keats Centenary
To honor late children's book author-illustrator Ezra Jack Keats, a 100th birthday blowout is planned throughout the month of June. And since Ezra was born in Brooklyn, many of the activities take place there, including the designation of a Prospect Park statue of Peter and Willie, two of Ezra's most beloved characters, as a Literacy Landmark.
