Announcing our first Chuckanut Radio Hour since 2019! And we can't think of a better author to host for this auspicious occasion than Kira Jane Buxton, author of the runaway bestseller, Hollow Kingdom. This event will be at the Firehouse Performing Arts Center and due to Covid restrictions, seating will be limited so register now and reserve your spot! Kira Jane Buxton’s debut novel, Hollow Kingdom, introduced the world to S.T., a foulmouthed, Cheeto®-loving crowtagonist on a quest to save humankind from extinction. A finalist for the 2020 Thurber Prize for American Humor, the book received critical acclaim and burrowed into the hearts of countless readers. With Feral Creatures, Kira Jane Buxton continues S.T.’s story with another bighearted, death-defying adventure that will take our hero from the wilds of Alaska and across the Bering Sea on the backs of orcas, returning to S.T.’s beloved homeland of Seattle where an epic battle between the animal kingdom and a new mutant threat will be waged. But there’s more at stake than ever, as S.T. must protect Dee, the last human on Earth, whom he’s raised since birth with a coterie of owls, a protective bald eagle and an oafish muskox. With her trademark blend of satirical humor, fantasy and horror, Buxton explores how despite climate change and an increasingly complex society, we can still hold out hope for the future… even if it’s on the (broken) wing of an opinionated crow.
