Erica Jong

Originally published in 1973, Erica Jong's first novel, Fear of Flying (Henry Holt; $35.00), not only coined a new phrase for a sex act, it launched a new way of thinking about gender, sexuality, and liberty.  Now, on the 40th anniversary of its publication, Fear of Flying has been reintroduced as a special edition, with an introduction by bestselling author, journalist, and self-proclaimed feminist Jennifer Weiner.  Weiner, whose books include the bestselling Good in Bed and In Her Shoes (which was adapted into a major motion picture), has been a vocal critic of male bias and entrenched sexism in the publishing industry.  Join Jong and Weiner for a fearless and fascinating evening of conversation.
