27th Annual Ezra Jack Keats Mini-Grant call for proposals deadline is March 31. Recent winners include (left) Lewiston Middle School, Maine, where African immigrant students were inspired by Keats' inclusion of characters not shown before in children's literature, and then wrote and illustrated a book about their city, which they self-published; and The Library at the Ruby C. Hunt YMCA in Shelby, NC, which built their own StoryWalk(R), where each page of a children's book is posted along a trail for families to read while exercising. This project boosted library attendance by 25%. To apply: www.ezra-jack-keats.org/minigrant-program/
