The WSHU Public Radio Group’s (Fairfield, CT, www.wshu.org) Join The Conversation series continues to win high marks from area residents who relish in the opportunity to meet with acclaimed authors and discuss the stories behind some of the best-selling books of our times.

Recently, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert, was on hand for her WSHU Join The Conversation event to discuss her latest novel, The Signature of All Things. The event, which took place at the Edgerton Center for the Performing Arts, Sacred Heart University, drew a crowd of approximately 350 people. They had the opportunity to first listen to a dynamic and well-paced interview of Gilbert by Trevor Crow (Southport, CT), a leading marriage and family therapist. The interview was followed by what turned out to be a fascinating question and answer session between the audience and Gilbert.

WSHU’s Join The Conversation series was designed to help advance WSHU’s mission, “To provide a unique and strong independent voice.” Gilbert’s works were ideal for this popular forum. The Signature of All Things takes places over the 18th and 19th centuries and features as one of its main characters, Alma Whittaker. Born into Philadelphia society, Alma is an independent girl thirsting for knowledge who comes into her own within the world of plants and science. She becomes a scientist whose path crosses with Ambrose Pike, a mysterious painter of orchids longing for purity and communion. Together, Alma and Ambrose search for the meaning behind all life.
