Marking the 40th anniversary of her novel "Fear of Flying," the award-winning author Eric Jong joins Live Talks Los Angeles to read from and discuss her work. She will be joined in conversation by fellow writer Susan Orlean.

Live Talks L.A. says:

First published in 1973, "Fear of Flying" caused a national sensation, fueling fantasies, igniting debates about women and sex, and introducing a notorious phrase to the English language. Forty years later, [protagonist Isadora Wing's] honest and exuberant retelling of her sexual adventures--and misadventures--continues to provoke and inspire, and stands as an iconic tale of self-discovery, liberation, and womanhood.

A reception will precede the talk from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. For more information, go to the event website.
