Rosemary Sullivan's new biography of Svetlana Alliluyeva arrives June 2.
Svetlana Alliluyeva lived much of her life as Lana Peters in Wisconsin. A New Yorker essay looks back on her life through the letters she wrote.
Lana Peters, the only daughter and last surviving child of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin, died of colon cancer Nov. 22 in Richland County. Peters was 85 and had lived in Richland Center for the past several years.
Lana Peters — who was known internationally by her previous name, Svetlana Alliluyeva — died of colon cancer Nov. 22 in Wisconsin, where she lived off and on after becoming a U.S. citizen, Richland County Coroner Mary Turner said Monday.
Stalin's daughter, Lana Peters - a longtime resident of Wisconsin - talks about her family, past and present, and the film on her life, "Svetlana About Svetlana," which will be shown Sunday at the Wisconsin Film Festival.
