The jury of the 27th annual, citywide Ezra Jack Keats Bookmaking Competition has voted and the student winners (22 in total) are in. Pay homage to the art of books by seeing the winning and runner-up books in a special exhibition, on view in the Grand Lobby of the Brooklyn Public Library, Central Library, from May 6 to 26. The jury of this year's competition, sponsored by the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation and the Department of Education, included special guests Bryan Collier and David Ezra Stein, both Caldecott Honor–winning author-illustrators (and Time Out Kids faves). Two of the three citywide winners were books about Hurricane Sandy: Surviving Hurricane Sandy by Ellie Hui and Vincent Chen, in the grades 3–5 category, and We Are Not Alone by Amelia Samoylov, in the grades 6–8 category. The other citywide winner, in the grades 9–12 category is Shell, a picture book by Stuyvesant High School student Helen Lin about a girl's journey to selfhood.
