Time: 2:00 PM
Location: Bernardsville Library

What if it were 1925 and you wanted to open a Tea Room? What if you were a…woman that wanted to open a business? In this dramatic presentation by Maureen O’Connor Leach, Maisie Stanton will explain how her husband reacted and what she needed to do to prepare for this undertaking. The challenges faced by women who were stepping out of their homes and into the business world will be explored, and participants will engage in a lively discussion about the Tea Room craze and the evolution of women as entrepreneurs.
