Did you know that Ezra Jack Keats was born Jacob Ezra Katz? You’ll find out this fact and many more if you visit The Jewish Museum’s exhibit about Keats’ life and work. It’s called “The Snowy Day and the Art of Ezra Jack Keats” and will be there through January 29, 2012.
Several of OPL’s Children’s Librarians were lucky enough to attend a lecture about Keats’ life and to view his beautiful original collage illustrations and many of his other works of art.
For more information about his life and the exhibit, visit The Jewish Museum’s website.
Come by the Children’s Room to see our display of his books and pick up a bookmark which gives you a $3.00 discount on museum admission.
