I did, well in a round about way. :)
After having a lengthy talk with a friend about the book Eat, Pray, Love (which, if you didn't know already, I adore. Read more of my thoughts here.) I was convinced that she needed to share in its glory, and I willing relinquished my very used copy.
Anyway, during our discussion I mentioned that I wished that there was some way I could speak to Elizabeth Gilbert, the book's author. I wanted to thank her for sharing her story, and ask some questions. I had previously searched, and searched for an email address, but came up empty. Apparently, she wants a bit of privacy. Who could blame her; if the address was readily available, I bet she would have tons of women trying to contact her, and ask questions.
So, today Borders sent me an email, and to my great surprise there was a link for a book club video that featured a round table discussion with Elizabeth Gilbert, and a few women who had read the book. I watched, of course, and it was great. A lot of my questions were asked by the book club members, and answered by the author. It was really the next best thing to talking to her myself.
I can't wait till Elizabeth Gilbert's next novel comes out...I'm determined to be first in line at the book signing! :)
