A bit of backstory on these books, with an interview, posted on Winnipeg Review
I hope you like Katya's story! Yes, those Stalin and Hitler years were difficult times. But I want readers to focus on Katya's spirit and tenacity.
Because the publisher shut down in Dec/17, these books will now only be available at the wonderful, made-in-Manitoba Wayne Arthur Gallery on Provencher, or at Driven 2 Sew Quilt & Craft Shop in Steinbach, or by contacting me through this blog.
I'd be delighted to share research behind these books to groups of students or adults and have easy-to-use supplementary material available for teachers or book clubs so you can dig deeper into Katya's history.
