The next Outdoor Explorer will be focusing on writing about Alaska. We’ll have two of Alaska’s best and most successful authors in the studio, each of whom have told stories that take into account the terrain and landscapes, the myth and grandeur of the state, in both fiction and in non fiction. Eowyn Ivey is perhaps Alaska’s best selling author. She wrote The snow child, and her wonderful new book is The Bright Edge of the World. Tom Kizzia is the author of Pilgrims Wilderness, and has recently also written Alaska in the New Yorker.
HOST: Charles Wohlforth
- Eowyn Ivey’s new novel, To the Bright Edge of the World, will be released August 2. Her debut novel, The Snow Child, was a New York Times bestseller published in more than 25 languages. It was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, a UK National Book Award winner, an Indies Choice award for debut fiction, and a PNBA Book Award winner.
- Tom Kizzia has traveled widely in rural Alaska as a reporter for the Anchorage Daily News. His work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Post and been featured on CNN.
