Pat Cummings named 2016 Katowitz Radin Artist in Residence

“I believe children’s picture books are the catalyst to promote early literacy and beyond. My goal is to share my knowledge, experience and tools-of-the-trade with the next generation of children’s book authors and illustrators. Together, we join in this wonderful art of storytelling.”

– Pat Cummings
