Author Elizabeth Gilbert has inspired millions through her writing. Her bestselling memoir Eat, Pray, Love famously chronicled the year she spent traveling the world after a shattering divorce, and has sold over ten million copies worldwide. A persistent longing to understand the world and her place in it have colored her work from the beginning, and made her not merely a writer but an explorer.

In the decade since Eat, Pray, Love, people around the world have sought her advice on how to lead a bold and inspired life, and she has dedicated herself to exploring the mysteries of courage and creativity. Thanks to her trademark humor and intimate voice, Gilbert's books are the kind of writing that people keep on their nightstands for years, pages flagged and passages highlighted.

Join artist Lisa Congdon for an inspiring conversation with Elizabeth about her life and work, and leave with new insights on living a more creative and courageous life.
