Candace Bushnell Discussing Is There Still Sex in the City?October 1, 2019 | 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Remember Sex and the City? The author of that seminal work, Candace Bushnell, is back two decades later with a new book, Is There Still Sex in the City? — for women 50+. Put on a great pair of shoes and come on out. Join Women Lit at The Commonwealth Club of California in San Francisco on the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 1, to hear the trailblazing creator of Sex and the City discuss the new book with Lauren Schiller of Inflection Point. The iconic Sex and the City broke down major barriers in cultural representations of single women and reshaped the landscape of pop culture. Bushnell now guides us through a new and entangled dating scene. Is There Still Sex in the City? follows a whole new cohort of female friends, Sassy, Kitty, Queenie, Tilda Tia, Marilyn and Candace, as they face the modern-day sex arena as middle aged women, including younger partners, dating apps, divorce, children, and the pressure to maintain a youthful appearance. Equal parts hilarious and heart-wrenching, and filled with Bushnell’s signature short, sharp social commentary, Is There Still Sex in the City? not only provides a colorful look into love after 50, but also asks audiences to take a more nuanced look into the lives of women.
