Elizabeth Gilbert

The Art of Living Well® Speaker Series

Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir Eat Pray Love is a famous bestseller that chronicles the year Gilbert spent traveling the world after a shattering divorce. The book, “fueled by a mix of intelligence, wit, and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible” (The New York Times Book Review), catapulted Gilbert to a woman Oprah Winfrey has called a “rock star author.” Since Eat Pray Love, she dedicated herself to exploring the mysteries of courage and creativity. Out of this period of introspection came Gilbert’s brilliant nonfiction treatise, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear and her TED Talk “Your elusive creative genius,” which has been viewed over 17 million times. This year, Gilbert returned to fiction with City of Girls, a love story set in the New York City theater scene during the 1940s.

The Art of Living Well® Speaker Series

Frances Mayes has always adored houses, and when she saw Bramasole, a neglected, 200-year old Tuscan farmhouse nestled in five overgrown acres, it was love at first sight. Out of that instant infatuation has come six marvelous, and hugely popular, books. The #1 bestseller Under the Tuscan Sun remained on The New York Times bestseller list for two and a half years and was later made into a popular film starring Diane Lane. The other international best sellers are: Bella Tuscany and Every Day in Tuscany, the last in her Tuscan trilogy. All of Mayes highly personal books are about taking chances, living in Italy, loving and renovating an old Italian villa, the pleasures of food, books, wine, gardens, and the “voluptuousness of Italian life.”
