Grounds For Sculpture, the 42-acre not-for-profit sculpture park, museum, and arboretum located in Hamilton, NJ, is delighted to present a very special engagement with acclaimed author Elizabeth Gilbert on Thursday, May 10 at 7:30pm as part of GFS’ continued “Conversations on Creativity” speaker series.
Gilbert exploded onto the literary scene in 2006 with her novel Eat, Pray, Love. Called “a generation’s instruction manual” by The Toronto Sun, the bestseller famously chronicled the year Gilbert spent traveling the world after a shattering divorce. In the decade since, people around the world have sought Gilbert’s advice on how to lead a bold and inspired life, and she has dedicated herself to exploring the mysteries of courage and creativity.
This program will begin with a lecture that draws upon insights explored in Gilbert’s most recent nonfiction work, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, and conclude with questions from the audience. VIPs will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with the author during a light fare reception beginning at 6:00pm, receive a signed copy of Big Magic, and enjoy preferred seating during the program.
