Stay x The Hot One: Book Launch, Discussion, and Signing

August 6, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

New York Magazine editor Carolyn Murnick’s new book The Hot One is more than a story of murder. It’s the story of female friendship and its evolution from heartwarming moments to heartbreaking significance.

Today we’re thrilled to be hosting Carolyn for a reading from The Hot One, followed by a panel led by bossladies magazine Editor-in-Chief Chelsea Sonksen with guests and boss ladies in their own right, Ellen Bennett and Chelsea Matthews. Over the course of the morning, we’ll discuss communities of women, the bonds of friendship, and how to deal with loss and grief. It’s going to be fab.
