Sno-Isle Libraries Launches Community Reading Program

CAW-ing all book lovers! Join our community in reading “Hollow Kingdom."

Sno-Isle Libraries is launching its inaugural community reading program, Sno-Isle Reads Together. Connect with your community as we read the same book. The selected title for the first Sno-Isle Reads Together is “Hollow Kingdom,” by local author Kira Jane Buxton, opens a new window.

“Hollow Kingdom” is a quirky, humorous, and heroic tale following a crow in the apocalypse. Readers will recognize locations in this local story and be inspired to create a closer connection with nature. This unique story will spark reflection, discussion, and have you rooting for your new favorite corvid.

Sno-Isle Libraries will offer fun complementary programs for book discussion, wilderness survival, learning about local wildlife, zombie folklore, and more. The programs are designed to pair with “Hollow Kingdom,” but can also be enjoyed regardless of reading the book.
