Historian Nancy Vicknair Seeking Information About Author Mara Kay For Biography
I am currently seeking any and all information about author MARA KAY, author of MASHA as well as other YA books. I am preparing a biography of the author and an analysis of her body of work.
Active ca. 1950-80. Probably born in Russia or Ukraine ca. 1935. Her surname "KAY" might have been changed when entering USA or upon marriage. May have a twin or brother and only one parent-may have been adopted. Fluent in many languages.
Perhaps related to Russian landed class pre - revolution and/or of Jewish descent. Also perhaps employed by Montgomery Ward. Also tentative residence in Long Island NYC. Want any information which would be appreciated.
