Life of the Party: The Remarkable Story of How Brownie Wise Built, and Lost, a Tupperware Party Empire

May 18 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 pm

Before Mary Kay and Martha Stewart, there was Brownie Wise, the charismatic Tupperware executive who converted postwar optimism into a record-breaking sales engine powered by American housewives.

Author Bob Kealing offers the definitive portrait of Wise, a plucky businesswoman who divorced her alcoholic husband, started her own successful business, and eventually caught the eye of Tupperware inventor, Earl Tupper, whose plastic containers were collecting dust on store shelves.

Join the Book Group for a lively discussion led by Penny Liu. Book Group members receive a 10% discount in the museum store.
