Bestselling Author Elizabeth Gilbert to appear Sunday, February 13 at Mequon Elite Sports Club

Feb. 10, 2011

Next Chapter Bookshop in Mequon, WI presents a special event – “Eat, Pray, Love and get Committed” – an afternoon with author Elizabeth Gilbert on Sunday, February 13, 2011 from 12PM-4PM at Elite Sports Club in Mequon, WI - 11616 N. Port Washington Road. Attendees will EAT – cooking demonstrations and food samplings from some of the area’s top restaurants, PRAY – Yoga demonstrations and instruction, and LOVE –couple raffle prizes/silent auction. All proceeds will benefit Gathering on the Green, a community organization whose mission is to enrich the lives of people in our communities by introducing and fostering the future of the performing arts.

 

Gilbert is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love and the follow-up to the blockbuster bestseller, Committed. Penguin Books recently released it in paperback for the first time.

Tickets are $29 in advance or $35 at the door and will be available starting January 14, 2011 at Next Chapter Bookshop, all four Elite Sports Club locations, and online immediately at gatheringonthegreen.org.
