It would be my pleasure to send you a copy for consideration. Please let me know where I should mail the book.

My email: galina@galinacherny.com

I think we are also connected in one of the FB groups so you could DM me there.

Thank you.

Wishing you and your family a happy and prosperous year ahead.

Great videos, Alina! Such fantastic discussions with your daughter. She is lovely.

I can relate to your comments about speaking Russian to her when she was young. Even though my husband and I spoke Russian, teaching our sons didn’t work for us either. I was obsessed with them learning English so they wouldn’t sound like immigrants.

After reading your book, The Nesting Dolls, I keep "running into you" on social media. Getting to know the author behind the story is a special treat, and I am thankful for that.

My debut memoir about my Soviet life and the American experience was published last year. It's been an amazing journey and an eye-opener.

This is a great idea but I wish you would also add a simple booklist because I might not have the time to watch the videos.
