Margarita Meyendorff

Margarita Meyendorff (Mourka) is the author of the published memoir DP: Displaced Person

Margarita Meyendorff (Mourka) is the author of the published memoir DP: Displaced Person.  The daughter of a Russian Baron, she was born displaced in a refugee camp in Germany, far from the opulence of Imperial Russia that was her birthright. A series of wars destroyed this privileged existence, and Margarita’s life became a series of extraordinary moves.  She has performed as an actress, dancer, musician, and storyteller at venues throughout the United States and in Europe.  Her memoir, DP Displaced Person is being translated in Russian for publication in Russia next year and Margarita’s short stories have been published internationally. One of her stories, entitled Rudolf Nureyev recently won an Honorable Mention for the New Millenium Writing Award. Margarita recently published her second book, an anthology of short stories entitled Flipping the Bird based on her numerous life adventures.
