Sofiya Pasternack presents Anya and the Dragon with Kwame Alexander
Provo Library & King's English Bookstore, Salt Lake City
Sofiya Pasternack will read from and sign her new middle-grade novel Anya and the Dragon.
Anya and the Dragon is the story of fantasy and mayhem in tenth century Eastern Europe, where headstrong eleven-year-old Anya is a daughter of the only Jewish family in her village. When her family’s livelihood is threatened by a bigoted magistrate, Anya is lured in by a friendly family of fools, who promise her money in exchange for helping them capture the last dragon in Kievan Rus. This seems easy enough, until she finds out that the scary old dragon isn’t as old—or as scary—as everyone thought. Now Anya is faced with a choice: save the dragon, or save her family.
Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase a copy of Anya and the Dragon from The King's English.
