Elizabeth Gilbert and More at B&N

Filed under: On the Spot

Good news from Lauren Cerand: Starting Wednesday, June 21, there's a new series at the Union Square B&N, in which Katherine Lanpher interviews writers and musicians who'll also perform. (Free!) The best thing about this so far, for me, is the presence of Elizabeth Gilbert, whose book Pilgrims hooked me way back in '97; Stern Men, from '00, has permanently (though not fatally) cracked my carapace. Here's the New Yorker review of Eat, Pray, Love. More (some links mine):

“Upstairs at the Square” kicks off on Wednesday, June 21, at 7PM with Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir, Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia and singer-songwriter Jen Chapin, whose new album, Ready, will be released next month as a follow-up to Linger, which National Public Radio called “a brilliant debut album.”
Katherine Lanpher is an award-winning print and broadcast journalist. Springboard Press will publish her first book, Leap Days: Chronicle of a Midlife Move, this October.

The next two events in “Upstairs at the Square” will be held at the Union Square Barnes & Noble on Wednesday, July 19, at 7PM, and Wednesday, August 16, also at 7PM.

Audio downloads of all three events will be available on Barnes & Noble.com (bn.com/writers).
