From Sarah to Sydney: The Story Behind Sydney Taylor's Biography

When Professor June Cummins taught a course at San Diego State on Jewish children's literature in the late 1990s, she was surprised to find so little information about Sydney Taylor, author of the beloved All-of-a-Kind series. The more she discovered about Taylor's family, childhood on the Lower East Side, artistic endeavors with Lee Strasberg and Martha Graham, decades of work at Cejwin Camps, and success as an author, the more she felt Taylor's story needed to be told. Her research took her from university archives to the home of Taylor's daughter, who generously made a treasure trove of material available to her. When Cummins was diagnosed with ALS, her friend Dr. Alexandra Dunietz began to help with the project, and the two of them completed the book together. Dr. Dunietz will speak about their collaboration and the recently published book it led to: From Sarah to Sydney: The Woman Behind All-of-a-Kind Family. This conversation will take place over Zoom.
