Best job ever! I love being a teacher! I love being a librarian! If you ever hear Eugene Yelchin, please do. He grew up in the Soviet Union/Russia and saw so much as a young lad. He has the gift to tell stories and his talent as an illustrator is incredible.
I read a few years ago Breaking Stalin’s Nose. Add this book to your library. Now I am reading The Assassination of Branwain Spurge, a collaboration with M. T. Anderson
