The Bird King book release with G. Willow Wilson


Join Wasat and Elliott Bay Books for the release of Willow Wilson's new novel, The Bird King. We are blessed to have such a gifted and prolific writer in our community; mark March 8 on your calendar and come help us celebrate Willow and her new work!

“Teeming with secrets, violence, and magic, G. Willow Wilson’s characters come alive in a backdrop of 15th century Spain that is at once sinister and lush. By turns humorous and heartbreaking, the world held me captive and I’m haunted by it still.”—Sabaa Tahir, author, An Ember in the Ashes.

“The Bird King takes a time period that’s passed into cliché and makes it new and strange again. In this novel, the real runs alongside the fantastic, one informing the other, G. Willow Wilson’s eye for detail and her titanic imagination pumping together like pistons. She’s incredible. The Bird King has big things to say about states and souls, and it’s going to take you on a rollicking ride while it says them. I was fascinated and riveted and, by the end, deeply moved.”—Robin Sloan, author, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore.

G. Willow Wilson is also author of Alif the Unseen, The Butterfly Mosque, and the Ms. Marvel series, and is a beloved presence in the Wasat community!
