Elizabeth Gilbert - June 27, 2014

Elizabeth Gilbert returns to Asheville!  Detailed and well-researched historical fiction, The Signature of All Things follows the fascinating life of Alma Whittaker, a female botanist and moss enthusiast in the early 19th century. A staff favorite, The Signature of All Things is “a bracing homage to the many natures of genius and the inevitable progress of ideas, in a world that reveals its best truths to the uncommonly patient minds,” according to Barbara Kingsolver in the New York Times Book Review. Special thanks to Ramsey Library, the Great Smokies Writing Program, and Earth Fare!
