Eat, Pray, Phone Bank

Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the now-ubiquitous "Eat, Pray, Love," is teaming up with MoveOn.org to gin up some phone banking for the 2010 midterms. Here's a sample invitation:

What: Inspired by the best-selling book and movie Eat, Pray, Love, we're holding an "Eat, Call, Win!" party on Saturday in Saint Louis. We'll get together with other local progressives, eat some great desserts, hear from Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert, and call other MoveOn members in congressional districts with close races to sign them up to volunteer--so we can win this election and stop the Republican takeover

MoveOn is coordinating house parties across the country this weekend where members will "hear from" Gilbert and make calls.
