About this product
- DescriptionWinner San Diego Book Awards Eleven year old American travels to St. Petersburg, Russia with her Russian-born mother and ends up living alone in the train station among Russia's homeless children.
- Author BiographyCathy Worthington is author of Watch Over Thy Child, winner of the 2005 San Diego Book Awards in the fiction category. She lives in San Diego, California, is married to Barry Worthington, a child psychologist, and has one son, Nicholas Carter, a commercial real estate appraiser in the bay area. Inspiration for Moskovsky Station came in 2006 when, just prior to a trip to Russia, Cathy happened upon the television airing of a documentary entitled The Children of Leningradsky. The plight of the homeless children depicted in this Academy Award nominated film so moved her that she felt she just had to write their story. Though Moskovsky Station is a work of pure fiction, many of the details that make the story come alive were derived from the film. Cathy remains in contact with film director Hanna Polak and plans to support her drive to save children. Learn more at http: //www.childrenofleningradsky.com
