Book in Honour of June Cummins: “All-of-a-Kind”

Admired for her scholarship, mentorship and friendship, the collection of essays—and a poem by Katie Strode—assembled in June’s honour demonstrates how much she was loved, and how much she is missed. Based on a series of memorial talks organized by Joseph T. Thomas Jr.  at San Diego State University in the spring of 2019 (a little more than a year after June’s death at fifty-four from ALS in February 2018), the book also contains one of June’s lively, astute essays on Sydney Taylor’s All-of-a-Kind books. With its inspiriting cover art by Barbara Henry, All of a Kind: Remembering June Cummins keeps June present in our minds and hearts.

All-of-a-Kind: Remembering June Cummins, edited by Michael Joseph, Joseph T. Thomas, Jr. and Lissa Paul is now available on Amazon.
