This Day in June

SCC Professor Publishes Children’s Book

Dr. Gayle Pitman, a Psychology and Women’s Studies Professor at Sacramento City College, has published a children’s book entitled “This Day in June.” It is illustrated by Kristyna Litten and published by Magination Press, the publishing arm of the American Psychological Association.

The colorful book celebrates a Pride Parade, and is a “whimsical, validating, and exuberant reflection of the LGBT community. This Day in June welcomes readers to experience a pride celebration and share in a day when we are all united.”

“Also included is a Reading Guide chock-full of facts about LGBT history and culture, as well as a Note to Parents and Caregivers with information on how to talk to children about sexual orientation and gender identity in age-appropriate ways. This Day in June is an excellent tool for teaching respect, acceptance, and understanding of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.”

This Day in June is now available at Barnes & Noble,, and locally at The Avid Reader.

Congratulations, Dr. Pitman!
