The mind behind the Manolos– Candace Bushnell was in town talking Carrie before we knew her.

Bushnell who I found to be both fun and spunky did a rooftop book signing for an invitation only party atop the Residences on The Avenue. Notable guests included NBC4′s Eun Yang, Pamela Sorensen, Meredith Fineman, Cupcake stars Sophie Lamontagne and Katherine Kallinis, ABC7′s Pamela Brown and Capitol File’s Kate Bennett.
