Kira Jane Buxton with Rosemary Mosco

We help celebrate the release of Seattle author Kira Jane Buxton’s delightfully ‘animated’ new novel, Feral Creatures (Grand Central) with this virtual launch. Feral Creatures picks up where her lauded debut novel, Hollow Kingdom (finalist for Audie and Washington State Book Awards) left off, here again with intrepid crow S.T., intrepid as only crows can be, at the front and center.

"Buxton balances the snarky humor and moving tenderness of her delightful protagonist with genuine tension. Fans of post-apocalyptic dangers and witty narration will eat up this charming story."—Publishers Weekly.

"Readers who fell in love with Hollow Kingdom will not be disappointed by book two . . . S.T.’s struggles [are] both humorous and heart-wrenching in this powerful follow-up."—Buzzfeed.

This S.T. is the same of whom Helen Macdonald noted, writing of Hollow Kingdom, "S.T., the irrepressible, cursing crow is my new favorite apocalyptic hero."

For this evening, Kira Jane Buxton will be joined by Rosemary Mosco, a science writer, naturalist, and author of several comic books featuring birds and other worldly wonders. Her books include Birding Is My Favorite Video Game and the forthcoming A Pocket Guide to Pigeon Watching (Workman, due in November).
