The Snowy Day

Curator Reviews

Misty Copeland

Keats’ wonderful 1962 story is a true classic I remember from growing up. I was -- and continue to be -- drawn to both the simplicity of the story (a boy, Peter, takes a walk in the snow) and the, at the time rare, representation of someone whose skin color is like my own. Nearly sixty years after it was first published, I still find the book beautiful.

We love Keats’ dreamy depiction of winter in the city. Though written in 1962, Peter, the main character clad in his red snowsuit, could be wandering and wondering through New York today. It’s a totally beguiling timeless book.
