If you've followed us much at all here, you know how much we love supporting authors when they come to our area. Not only do I believe it's good karma or kismet but, as a writer, I find it so fascinating to hear an author share her story about how her book came to be. Much like watching the director's cut of a movie with the commentary on, listening to a writer tell about how a story grew from a germ of an idea into a tome you can hold in your hands is so intriguing.
She will speak at Highland Park United Methodist Church's Authors Live! on Monday night, November 4, at 7 p.m.
Ms. Gilbert returns to her fiction roots in The Signature of All Things following the memoir of her spiritual and geographical journey in Eat, Pray, Love. Multiple narrative threads weave seamlessly into this 18th-19th century saga that is typically Gilbert.
Highland Park United Methodist Church is located at 3300 Mockingbird Lane in Dallas. Ms. Gilbert's appearance is sponsored by The Friends of the Highland Park Public Library and The Friends of the SMU Libraries. The event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase and there will be a book signing following the program.
Hope to see you there!
