    This book isn’t that old, nonfiction essays about the histories of different extinct birds. Specifically there was an essay about the king bird, an enormous woodpecker from the Everglades. Not sure if it’s helpful but the author is currently a professor of creative writing in the US, just can’t remember at which university. A moving elegy to birds we’ve lost, Hollars’s exploration of what we can learn from extinct species will resonate in the minds of readers long beyond the final page. Purchase the audio edition. Watch a book trailer for Hollars’s newest book, Midwestern Strange.
