Author Event: Erica Jong

**AUTHOR EVENT**

Four decades ago, New York Times best-selling author Erica Jong revolutionized the way we look at love, marriage and sex through her world-wide bestseller, FEAR OF FLYING. She then gave us a powerful, new perspective on the next phase of women’s lives with her novel FEAR OF DYING. A poet, novelist, and essayist, Jong writes with sly humor, deep wisdom and poignancy. She has published 23 books and numerous articles in magazines and newspapers such as The New York Times, The Sunday Times of London, Elle, Vogue, The New York Times Book Review and The WallStreetJournal.

 Jong will be joined by her daughter, Molly Jong-Fast, a political pundit and author in her own right, as they discuss everything ranging from parenting to sex.

Infamous for their hilarious mother/daughter dynamic, this is sure to be an entertaining and thought-provoking talk! Audience members will have a chance to ask their questions, after which both ladies will be signing their respective books in our lobby. Don’t miss out!
