EJK Award Ceremony Highlights

The celebration has come and gone. We had a great turn out at the NYPL last night. My friends and family came out strong to share in my moment. Many thanks go to all committee members, the New York Public Library, and to the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation for such a wonderful honor. For those who couldn’t make it to the ceremony, here are a few pics from the night.
