Story Time: Yevgenia Nayberg presents Anya’s Secret Society
Painter, illustrator and stage designer Yevgenia Nayberg joins us at Greenlight to present her new book, Anya’s Secret Society. Left-handed Anya draws with great passion . . . but only when she's alone. In Russia, right-handedness is demanded--it is the “right way.” This cultural expectation stifles young Anya's creativity and artistic spirit as she draws the world around her in secret. Hiding away from family, teachers, and neighbors, Anya imagines a secret society of famous left-handed artists drawing alongside her. But once her family emigrates from Russia to America, her life becomes less clandestine, and she no longer feels she needs to conceal a piece of her identity. Yevgenia reads from the book and leads a mask-making and coloring activity!
