At the Podium

With a sensational wit and a one-of-a-kind delivery, Bushnell takes audiences behind her journey to becoming one of the most successful Women’s Literature authors of all time. Sharing anecdotes from her own rise from freelance writer, to up-and-coming columnist, to international best-selling author, Bushnell gives audiences a look inside the competitive—and often biased—world of professional writing. Along with picking up tips for navigating the daunting task of getting professionally published, audiences learn why New York City has become such a significant muse for this modern novelist.

“Candace was an absolute joy to work with. Our audience quite enjoyed her lecture. She was particularly accommodating at the book signing – she signed autographs and took pictures with audience members until everyone who wanted an autograph/picture had gotten the chance to meet her. She was there for at least an hour and was amazingly gracious and nice to everyone.”

- Indiana Memorial Union Board
