ELIZABETH GILBERT - Elizabeth Gilbert is the author of the # 1 New York Times bestseller Eat, Pray, Love - discusses her first novel in thirteen years - The Signature of All Things. Elizabeth Gilbert's immensely popular 2006 memoir, Eat, Pray, Love, was published in more than thirty languages, has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide, and in 2010 was made into a major motion picture starring Julia Roberts. Her first two books (the short story collection Pilgrims, and the novel Stern Men) were New York Times Notable Books, and her most recent work, Committed - a memoir of marriage - was a # 1 New York Times bestseller. In 2008, Time magazine named Gilbert one of the most influential people in the world. Now, she's back with a sweeping new novel spanning the 18th and 19th centuries and several continents. The Signature of All Things takes readers on a ride from the Age of Enlightenment to the Industrial Revolution, through the momentous scientific, social and commercial progress of those times, all while telling the birth-to-death story of one woman, botanist Alma Whittaker.
GRACE UNPLUGGED - Janice talked with James Denton and AJ Michalka - two of the stars of "Grace Unplugged." The movie was shot partially in Birmingham. In "Grace Unplugged", having just turned 18, Grace Trey aspires to more than just singing at her church, where the worship leader is her father-a former pop star. So, with the help of Mossy, her dad's former manager, Grace records a cover version of her dad's old Top-10 hit, runs off to Los Angeles, and begins to taste the kind of stardom she's always dreamed about. Yet with each rung of the ladder she climbs, Grace feels more and more pressure to compromise her values, further straining her relationship with her parents. Will everything she experiences lead her to reject her faith … or rediscover it? GRACE UNPLUGGED opens in theaters October 4. It is rated PG.
