READINGS: An afternoon event for those of you who don't need to be sweltering in a thankless office - Erica Jong has a conversation with writer Ariel Levy and reads from her new autobiography, Seducing the Demon: Writing for my Life in the sunny Bryant Park Reading Room as part of the Word for Word Series. In the book, Jong tells spicy tales of New York and Hollywood, and describes life after best-selling novel Fear of Flying. The rain venue is across the street from the park at Coliseum Books. - Krissa Corbett Cavouras
