Event Description

Join pop culture commentator and writer of the upcoming book Nobody Cares, Anne T. Donahue (The Globe and Mail, CBC’s q) and bestselling author Jennifer Keishin Armstrong (Seinfeldia), for a nostalgic, behind-the-scenes look at Sex and the City on its twentieth anniversary.

Enjoy cosmos and cupcakes with your friends while reliving legendary moments from the show on our big screen as Donahue and Armstrong explore exclusive new stories from the cast and writers in Armstrong’s hotly anticipated new book, Sex and the City and Us.

Learn how a columnist, two gay men, and a writers’ room full of women used their own poignant, hilarious, and humiliating stories to launch a cultural phenomenon—and how this iconic, if sometimes problematic, series endured slut-shaming and a slew of nasty reviews on its way to revolutionizing television for women.

Doors Open: 5:30 PM – Arrive early for cocktail specials and more. Book signing to follow.
