Atkinson-Pryce announced that it is with “huge excitement and great pleasure” that it welcomed the author, all the way from Alaska to Biggar, on a return visit to launch her new novel.

Four years since The Snow Child became a global sensation, selling more than 750,000 copies worldwide, Ivey is back with her second novel, To the Bright Edge of the World.

Set against a stark Alaskan landscape during the winter of 1885, the story follows the journey of an explorer through an uncharted wilderness.

Devastated to have been left behind, his wife embarks on a journey all of her own, which proves to be just as challenging as her husband’s.

Ivey weaves historical fact throughout this tale of discovery and loss.

The lunch is at the Elphinstone Hotel, Biggar. on Saturday, August 27, at 12.30pm, and tickets are £20. Advance booking is essential, via the shop. For details, contact or 01899 221225.
