Upcoming Interview with Sofiya Pasternack

I'm excited to announce that we will be interviewing Sofiya Pasternack, author of Anya and the Dragon, for our March podcast!

Anya is from the only Jewish family in her 10th Century Eastern European village. When prejudice threatens her family's livelihood, Anya agrees to help capture a dragon in return for a fee ... but then she finds out that the dragon isn't as big or as scary as she believed. Now she has to make a choice: will she save her family, or save the dragon?

Have you read Anya and the Dragon? Do you have questions for Sofiya about her book or her life as an author? Leave your questions in the comments below  by Monday, February 10, for the chance to have them featured in the interview!
