Maizie Brews a Business presentation on Wednesday, March 6, 2013 at 7 p.m. at the Washington Twp. Public Library, 37 E. Springtown Rd., Long Valley, NJ.
This first-person presentation by Maureen O’Connor Leach examines how women’s roles at the turn of the 20th century were changing from housewives to entrepreneurs with a dramatic monologue by a 1925 matron who is planning to start her own business operating a Tea Room.
Maizie Stanton, in a fashionable tea frock of the era, speaks in her own candid voice about her plans and the challenges she faces as she joins the Tea Room Craze and ventures outside her traditional role.
