Big Mammoth Magic

Elizabeth Gilbert in conversation with Chris Flynn

Tuesday 11 August 2020
6.30PM – 7.30PM

Two writers. Two good mates. Two naturally curious beings connect across two hemispheres and time zones to chew the literary fat and ask why creativity should be joyous, hopeful and fun. Elizabeth Gilbert is the award-winning author of bestsellers Eat, Pray, Love and City of Girls. Chris Flynn’s third novel, Mammoth has been hailed as a tour de force for originality.
