Eowyn Ivey

Eowyn (pronounced A-o-win) Ivey is an award-winning author who was raised in Alaska and has written two remarkable books set on this remote northern landscape. Former Sojourn author Ron Rash raves about her new novel, To the Bright Edge of the World as it “moves seamlessly through different times and different voices to depict an often harrowing journey that leads the central characters to question all that they ‘have known as real & true.’ Ivey’s novel is a dazzling depiction of love, endurance, courage, and wonder.” Her debut novel, The Snow Child, the story of a couple who creates a child out of snow, was a New York Times bestseller, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and winner of the UK National Book Award, the Indies Choice award for debut fiction, and a Pacific Northwest Booksellers Book Award. O, the Oprah Magazine, called it “a magical yet brutally realistic tale.” Her essays and short fiction have appeared in London’s Observer Magazine, Sunday Times Magazine, Sunday Express Magazine, Woman & Home Magazine, the anthology Cold Flashes, Alaska Magazine and the Wall Street Journal. Ivey continues to live in Alaska with her husband and two daughters, where she worked for nearly a decade as a bookseller at the independent Fireside Books in Palmer, and prior to that as a reporter for the local newspaper, The Frontiersman.
