Track the major bills winding through the Georgia legislature

Jong appearance almost sold out

Erica Jong's new book is "Fear of Dying."

Erica Jong’s new book is “Fear of Dying.”

That was fast.

Almost all of the 763 seats for the Erica Jong keynote speech at the AJC Decatur Book Festival flew out the door in about 15 minutes.

Earlier this afternoon Daren Wang, founding executive director of the festival, said a few tickets remain at A Capella Books and Little Shop of Stories, both in Decatur.

“A few” means fewer than 10, Wong added. “We’ve never had a keynote that didn’t sell out,” he added.

Jong appears Friday, Sept. 4, at 8 p.m., at Schwartz Performing Arts Center at Emory University in conversation with author Roxane Gay. Tickets are free but must be reserved.

By the way, this blog said the tickets would be available at 11 a.m., but they actually became available at 10 a.m. in most outlets, including at Emory. Some otherwise-punctual supplicants came up empty-handed. Our bad.
