Oxford Exchange and Tampa Theatre collaborate again for a special evening with with New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert, in celebration of the release of her new book, City of Girls, a rollicking, sexy tale of the New York City theater world during the 1940s.

Gilbert was born in Waterbury, Connecticut, and grew up on a small family Christmas tree farm. She attended New York University, where she studied political science by day and worked on her short stories by night. After college, she spent several years traveling around the country, working in bars, diners and ranches, collecting experiences to transform into fiction. These explorations eventually formed the basis of her first book – a short story collection called PILGRIMS, which was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway award, and which moved Annie Proulx to call her “a young writer of incandescent talent.”

During these early years in New York, she also worked as a journalist for such publications as Spin, GQ and The New York Times Magazine. She was a three-time finalist for The National Magazine Award, and an article she wrote in GQ about her experiences bartending on the Lower East Side eventually became the basis for the movie Coyote Ugly.

Elizabeth is best known, however for her 2006 memoir Eat Pray Love, which chronicled her journey alone around the world, looking for solace after a difficult divorce. The book was an international bestseller and was translated into more than 30 languages, with over 12 million copies sold worldwide. In 2010, Eat Pray Love was made into a film starring Julia Roberts. The book became so popular that Time Magazine named Elizabeth as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Tickets are $30.00, available at the historic Franklin Street Box Office or online ($1.00 service fee applies), and include a pre-signed paperback copy of City of Girls.
