Join Gabi Coatsworth as she interviews author Sonia Antaki about her Red Dove trilogy. Red Dove: Listen to the Wind, Antaki’s first middle-grade novel won multiple awards, including the American BookFest Best Book of 2019, a Nautilus Book Silver Award, and the Moonbeam Children’s Book Award. Its follow-up, Red Dove: Tell Truth to Darkness, has been honored as a 2021 International Book Awards Finalist in Children’s Fiction and as a Moonbeam Silver Medalist.
Born in Egypt, Antaki came to the U.S. as a child. Before developing a passion for middle-grade and young adult fiction, she had several careers–as a professional singer, a financial analyst, and a Tony-nominated Broadway producer.
