Elizabeth Gilbert is next Talking Volumes guest

Posted by: Kristin Tillotson under Books, Celebrities Updated: May 13, 2014 - 3:12 PM

Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the smash hit memoir "Eat, Pray, Love," will be a special summer guest for the Talking Volumes book series, appearing July 11 at the Fitzgerald Theater to discuss her novel "The Signature of All Things." 

Published in 2006, "Eat, Pray, Love," based on Gilbert's soul-searching travels abroad following a difficult divorce, sold over 10 million copies and was made into a 2010 movie starring Julia Roberts. With "The Signature of All Things," a saga about a 19th-century botanist who finds love after decades of communing primarily with foliage, Gilbert proves she's no one-hit wonder.

Critical praise for the ambitious novel includes "This whimsically engaging and wonderfully imagined novel can only be called her most ambitious and most notable work yet"  (Star Tribune) and "Looks like Gilbert keeps raising the bar" (Elle).

Talking Volumes is presented by the Star Tribune and Minnesota Public Radio, in collaboration with The Loft Literary Center. Tickets ( $25, $23 for members) are on sale here
