Siberiak: My Cold War Adventure on the River Ob

Siberiak: My Cold War Adventure on the River Ob

$22.95
Siberiak is a young adult graphic memoir featuring a young woman on a peace mission to the USSR in 1988. The trip to Russia is seen through the eyes of a 17 year-old: a Jewish Californian raised in a hippie environment whose culture clashes with the other Americans on the journey more than with the Russians. In her beautifully illustrated travelogue, Jenny Jaeckel reminds us of the freshness of that first trip without our parents, finding our way through the fish-out-of-water experience. She also makes us remember that feeling of uncertainty that was alive during the Cold War, when the threat of a nuclear war seemed entirely a possibility. Appropriate for ages 16 and up due to language. More info →
