“The Secret Society” A Russian Language Picture Book

Children & Family Literature & Book Publishing 2015-2016

Yevgenia Nayberg is writing and illustrating a Russian language children’s book about the contemporary immigration experience through the eyes of a child. The book, titled “The Secret Society,” approaches the subject of being different metaphorically, through the story of a left-handed little girl and her “secret leftie society.” The story resonates not only with children, but also with the adults whose immigration coincided with adolescence. Yevgenia is an award-winning illustrator, painter and stage designer.
