The launch of the book signing tour for the paperback version of Fear of Flying took place at my bookstore in Paramus, NJ, in the early 70s after a week of publicity stills, lunches, parties, a boat ride and non-stop visits by the author and her publishers. It was quite a grand event and drew a huge crowd including actor Alan Alda, who lived nearby. Another famous neighbor and frequent visitor was Robert Ludlum. Erica took to the bright lights like a proverbial duck to water and we all had a lot of fun that whole week.
It's great to see her still radiant and going strong after all this time!
