The Magic of Elizabeth Gilbert
News from the AWF:
Best-selling Eat Pray Love author Elizabeth Gilbert (left) delivers an inspiring lecture on creativity in this exclusive Auckland event. Since the publication of Eat Pray Love and its sequel Committed, Gilbert has continued in her quest to encourage and inspire creativity in us all. A journalist, novelist and short story writer, Gilbert’s books include story collection Pilgrims, the novel Stern Men, and the Eustace Conway biography The Last American Man and, in 2011, the widely acclaimed novel The Signature of All Things, a tale of botanical exploration in the nineteenth century.
Gilbert’s expressiveness and talent for public speaking has seen her TED talk amass over 10 million views and she is widely listened to via podcast. Her latest book, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, is a manifesto on how to cultivate and use our imaginations.
Don’t miss Gilbert in this exclusive one hour event focused on how to live the most creative life possible, presented by Auckland Writers Festival and Auckland Live, in association with Bloomsbury Publishing.
NB: Elizabeth Gilbert will not be available to sign books following the event, but pre-signed books will be available at the venue for purchase on the night.
