PEN DIY with Erica Jong, Hosted by Emily Gould

Building on oral traditions, parables, and the rich history of artists as unpretentious makers, PEN DIY celebrates how literature can be approachable yet unexpected, and how it can help us make sense of our lives. New talks by acclaimed writers and artists the first Monday of every month.

Join us February 2, for our first DIY of 2015, as we welcome Erica Jong to the stage to perform a literary “how-to,” hosted by Emily Gould

Erica Jong is a poet, novelist and essayist whose works have been influential all over the world. Her first novel Fear of Flying has sold over 27 million copies from the US and Europe to China. Fear of Flying has just celebrated its 40th Anniversary with new editions in many languages. Erica is the author of seven widely honored volumes of poetry, eight novels and seven non-fiction books. Among other awards she has been honored with the Fernanda Pivano Award for Literature in Italy, the United Nations Award for Excellence in Literature and Poetry Magazine’s Bess Hokin Prize. Erica’s new novel, Fear of Dying, is due for publication in the US by St. Martin’s Press in September 2015.
