Erica Jong, author of the ground-breaking novel Fear of Flying, published in 1973, will be interviewed by author Roxane Gay for the 2015 AJC DBF Keynote event. The event will kick off the festival's tenth year at the Schwartz Performing Arts Center at Emory University on Friday, Sept. 4, at 8 p.m.
Jong comes to the AJC DBF launching her novel Fear of Dying, a sequel to Fear of Flying that is a hilarious, searingly honest and heart-wrenching story about what happens when one woman steps reluctantly into the afternoon of life.
