Elizabeth Gilbert presents The Signature of All Things (paperback launch)
In conversation with Rebecca Mead
Tickets: $15 (includes a copy of The Signature of All Things)
Elizabeth Gilbert is the acclaimed author of the memoir, Eat, Pray, Love, which was a #1 New York Times bestseller, published in more than thirty languages and the basis for a major motion picture. Gilbert triumphantly returns to fiction with her novel The Signature of All Things, a beguiling novel of desire and discovery spanning much of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The story of an irrepressible woman, determined to satisfy her most powerful urges toward both love and knowledge, this is a novel immersed in all the great questions of the nineteenth century but also very much a novel for our times. New Yorker writer Rebecca Mead (author of My Life in Middlemarch) chose The Signature of All Things as one of the best books of 2013; Greenlight is proud to host Gilbert in conversation with Mead to launch the paperback edition of the novel.
