SDSU's June Cummins Joins Panel to Discuss the Classic Children's Series 'All of a Kind Family' Following Its Re-Publication

Lizzie Skurnick is republishing All of a Kind Family, which is recognized widely as a children’s classic series. To highlight this republication and significance in children’s literature, a panel will discuss their own experiences with these books and the impact it made on their own lives. We are very pleased and honored to announce that our very own June Cummins with be apart of this panel. Not only is Dr. Cummins a well-respected literature professor at San Diego State University but she is also the author of this new Re-Publication’s introduction, which makes it even more worthy of checking out.

All of a Kind Family is a classic children's book series that works to establish the Jewish immigrant family and describes what makes up their experience as it’s carried into the early-twentieth-century. Set in New York City, the story follows an Eastern European Jewish immigrant family living on the Lower East Side.

The panel event will take place at the Tenement Museum, in New York on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at 6:30PM (Doors open at 6:00PM) and admission is free.

This panel will also include writers Anna Holmes, Rebecca Traister, historian Hasia Diner, and Lizzie Skurnick

Congratulations to Dr. June Cummins! We are looking forward to seeing you stir up some great topics on this panel.
