Following the tumultuous and unexpected life of Zenaida Katzen, this biography weaves disparate threads from Russia, China, Chile, France, and St. Kitts-Nevis into a vibrant tapestry revealing a surprising and exceptional woman. Stepping outside of the spinster-teacher archetype, Katzen’s story is one of a complicated, fiercely independent woman whose decades of unwavering dedication and commitment to the education of children across the globe belie an intriguing, unpredictable and, at times, inexplicable personal life.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL. Just a quick note to express a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has read the biography of this extraordinary teacher and to those who have shared their thoughts about the book by way of email or review on amazon. Your comments were quite instructive and greatly appreciated.
