Holiday Movie Screening and Sing-along: Ezra Jack Keats’ The Snowy Day


Join us for an exclusive screening of the Daytime Emmy Award-winning animated film The Snowy Day, based on Ezra Jack Keats' 1962 classic story, narrated by Laurence Fishburne and voiced by Regina King, Angela Bassett and Jamie-Lynn Sigler. The film follows young Peter’s magical, snowy walk to his Nana's house to bring home their Christmas Eve dinner. One the way, he meets some new (and diverse) friends who come together to celebrate many traditions.  

To make the morning super-fun, we’ve added sing-along holiday songs and a special host!  To top it off, each family and classroom receives a copy of this beloved children’s book—a gift from the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation to our audiences.  A very special day indeed!
