Elizabeth Gilbert

In Conversation with Pico Iyer

Sat, May 6

“Elizabeth Gilbert is everything you would love in a tour guide… she’s wise, jaunty, human, ethereal, hilarious, heartbreaking, and God, does she pay great attention to the things that really matter.” – Anne Lamott

Elizabeth Gilbert has put some serious time into writing about big topics, inspiring and empowering readers from all walks of life with her books, including the mega-bestselling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, the wildly popular Committed: A Love Story and The Signature of All Things, named one of the Best Books of the Year by The New York Times, O, The Oprah Magazine, NPR and Time. Gilbert is fascinated by creativity and the “strange jewels” that are hidden within each of us, as explored in her recent work Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. In conversation with Santa Barbara favorite and fellow deep thinker Pico Iyer, Gilbert will delve into the mysterious nature of inspiration.

Pre-signed books by both authors will be available for purchase
