Books & Brews continues with a special author event at Discretion Brewing, 2703 41st Avenue, Suite E, Soquel.
Author event: Kira Jane Buxton will join us at Discretion Brewing to discuss her new book, Hollow Kingdom. One pet crow fights to save humanity from an apocalypse in this uniquely hilarious debut from a genre-bending literary author. "A plucky hero, a boisterous tale, startling prose and eerie events combine for a thoroughly enjoyable account of the end of the world as we know it. The Secret Life of Pets meets The Walking Dead." ―Karen Joy Fowler.
"How do I write a review about this book without sounding like a shrieking, sobbing mess? I loved just about every second of this book. Shit Turd and Dennis' journey breathes new life into the post-apocalyptic genre. I barely wanted to put the book down to attend to normal human things, I was so engrossed in this Seattle inhabited by only animals. I spent a good amount of time weeping while this book was in my hands, only pausing in my devouring of the story to clutch at my confused little dog and snuggle him. This book will make you marvel at domesticated animals and their love for us, it will make you re-think your relationship with technology, and it will make you want to befriend your local murder." - J, Bookshop Santa Cruz Staff
