Rowan Hisayo Buchanan Announces Changes to US Release of Starling Days

Monday, March 30, 2020

KHN Alum (2019) Rowan Hisayo Buchanan is thrilled for the US release of her book, Starling Days, which will be available in the US on April 7, 2020. However, Rowan announced with sadness the cancellation of her American book tour. But that will not stop the book from continuing to be read by many around the world!

Here, sampling the captivating goodness of Starling Days, are writer Alexandra Ford’s (a friend of Rowan's) sheep, as they and the writer/shepherd demonstrate the importance of reading, supporting writers, and the beauty of animals and nature in these trying and uncertain times.

Starling Days was published by Sceptre in UK earlier this year, and will be available in the USA with new cover-art, and is Rowan's second novel; a book about "love, Ovid, mental illness, and Japanese beer." (via Rowan Hisayo Buchanan/website)

Rowan’s book Harmless Like You, is part of KHN’s permanent collection.
