LOCAL AUTHOR OFFERS LOVE & ESPIONAGE SUMMER READING TO YOUNG ADULTS LOVE IN LENINGRAD takes a New Look at Young Adult Love & the Cold War

June 28, 2010

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The FBI has arrested 10 people for allegedly serving for years as secret agents of Russia's intelligence organ, the SVR, with the goal of penetrating U.S. government policymaking circles.

Newton, MA – File it under: You can’t make this stuff up. Author Harriet Costa, in one of her professional incarnations, was trained by a suspiciously secretive woman who turned out to be a Russian spy (see quote above). Costa decided that today, the anniversary of the spies’ arrests, would be a good time to release her book, Love in Leningrad. Costa’s tale is loosely based on her own 16th summer in Leningrad – a time of romance, espionage and self-discovery.

Love in Leningrad can be read on several levels. It is a coming of age novel, a romance, a mystery and an intriguing historical introduction of the Cold War to young adults. It is the story of groups of American students who travel to Leningrad one summer to perfect their Russian, and experience much more than they came for.
