Literary Cafe presents: An Evening with Erica Jong

Date/Time

Apr 16, 2019
07:00 PM until 09:00 PM

Description

Erica Jong, author of the acclaimed Fear of Flying, reads selections from her new book of poetry, The World Began with Yes (Red Hen Press). In a dark time, poems celebrate life. The evening will include a poetry reading by Francesca Bell, audience Q&A, and book signings.

Fear of Flying, Erica Jong's first and most famous novel, published in 1973, blew conventional thinking about women, marriage and sexuality out of the water, selling over 37 million copies and translated into over 45 languages including Chinese and Arabic. Her novel articulated what women thought but which, through decades of silent complicity with the status quo, was never voiced.

In the four decades since Fear of Flying, she has published over 25 books in 45 languages, including 9 works of fiction as well as celebrated non-fiction volumes such as What Do Women Want?, Seducing the Demon: Writing for My Live, an anthology on - well, sex - called Sugar in My Bowl: Real Women Write About Real Sex, that she edited, and in 2012, a Kindle Single, A Letter to the President, which bravely takes on the issues facing American women today. She has switched between fiction, non-fiction and poetry, becoming one of the most evocative poets of her generation with seven published volumes, and winning Poetry magazine's Bess Hokin Prize. Her awards include: The Fernanda Pivano award, The Sigmund Freud Award, the Deauville Award and The United Nations Award for excellence in literature.
