Elizabeth Gilbert on her novel of a 19th century adventuress – ‘The Signature of All Things’

gilbertElizabeth Gilbert won millions of readers the world over with her own memoir “Eat, Pray, Love,” and then she took on something completely different – a novel about a 19th century woman of brains and heart, “The Signature of All Things.”

Alma Whittaker is a bryologist (student of mosses), daughter of a rich man and a woman extraordinarily gifted in brains and unlucky in love. Gilbert’s story takes her from England to Philadelphia to the South Seas to Holland. It’s one of the Seattle Times’ best books of 2013, and Gilbert discusses it tonight on “Well Read,” the books and authors television program on state public affairs network TVW. It airs at 7 and 10 p.m. (in Seattle, on Comcast channel 23). Or you can watch it here.

For more information, here’s the Seattle Times review.
