Lily and Barbara Kingsolver, COYOTE'S WILD HOME

The one and only BARBARA KINGSOLVER (yes, of Demon Copperhead!!) has written a brilliant picture book with her daughter Lily — and spoke to Zibby all about it! The book, COYOTE'S WILD HOME, aims to positively represent predators and nature, targeting both children and adults. The narrative features parallel stories of a human child and a coyote pup learning about their environments, emphasizing respect and understanding for wildlife. Barbara and Lily share their deep-rooted environmental values, shaped by their rural upbringings and interactions with nature. Their collaboration involved overcoming challenges like distilling complex ecological ideas into a children's book format and working remotely during Lily's graduate studies.
