Kira Jane Buxton

Kira Jane Buxton’s debut novel, Hollow Kingdom (Grand Central), has received many accolades and we’ve invited her to Elliott Bay to read from her work. Though this comic, dystopian novel is fiction, we’ve also invited her to discuss some of the scientific research on crows that helped inform some aspects of the story. 

"Hollow Kingdom is a nature book for our own age, an exuberant, glittering, hard-hitting mashup of Dawn of the Dead and The Incredible Journey. It's an adventure lit by strange myths, brand-names, television and smartphone screens, a fable with teeth and claws about animals making new lives amongst the ruins of humanity. It's transformative, poignant, and funny as hell. S.T. the irrepressible, cursing crow is my new favourite apocalyptic hero."-- Helen Macdonald.
