Candace Bushnell’s novel Sex and the City was spun into a TV series megahit about a group of women friends who were NOT focused on finding husbands. It was a revolutionary idea. Now, almost a quarter century later, Bushnell is back with the semi-autobiographical Is There Still Sex in the City?, a novel with a new cast of female characters, newly single, over fifty, and trying to make sense of an altered dating landscape. For another view of women in midlife, Ada Calhoun will discuss her forthcoming Why We Can’t Sleep: Women’s New Midlife Crisis, an expansion of her viral story about GenX women on Oprah.com. Calhoun interviewed hundreds of women across the country about what they are experiencing and offers advice that is a little more nuanced than “lean in.” We promise you will be both challenged and entertained in this no-holds-barred conversation moderated by Robin Young, co-host of Here & Now on WBUR. The first 500 attendees will receive a complimentary teaser of Ada Calhoun’s new book!
