'Sex in the City' author to appear in Manchester
MANCHESTER — Candace Bushnell, the author of "Sex and the City," will present her new book, "Is There Still Sex in the City?" at 6 p.m. on Aug. 24. The ticketed event is sponsored by the Northshire Bookstore, and will take place at the Maple Street School. Tickets are $29 for one seat and one book, or $37 for two seats and one book, and are available through Eventbrite.
Bushnell's new book is a wry, witty, and wise look at sex, dating and friendship in New York City after 50. Twenty years after her sharp, seminal first book "Sex and the City" reshaped the landscape of pop culture and dating with its fly-on-the-wall look at the mating rituals of the Manhattan elite, Bushnell draws from her own experience and spins a smart, lively satirical story of love and life from all angles — marriage and children, divorce and bereavement, as well as the very real pressures on women to maintain their youth and have it all.
In addition to "Sex in the City," Bushnell is the internationally bestselling author of "Lipstick Jungle," "The Carrie Diaries," "One Fifth Avenue," "Trading Up," "Four Blondes," "Summer and the City" and "Killing Monica." "Sex and the City," published in 1996, was the basis for the HBO hit series and two subsequent blockbuster movies. "Lipstick Jungle" became a television series on NBC, as did "The Carrie Diaries" on the CW.
Maple Street School is located at 322 Maple St., Manchester.
