Honor Roll: Ezra Jack Keats Award

July 6, 2010

Telling the story of a girl who dresses up as a witch for Halloween and tries to fly, the children’s book Only a Witch Can Fly is illustrated by alumnus Taeeun Yoo (MFA 2005 Illustration as Visual Essay). Yoo’s linoleum-block-print illustrations use a muted palette of green, brown, orange and black, and earned her the 2010 Ezra Jack Keats Award for New Illustrator. Presented by the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation and the New York Public Library, the awards are given to one writer and one illustrator each year.
