Mad Women: The Other Side of Life on Madison Avenue in the Sixties and Beyond
Join us on Wednesday, May 16th to hear Jane Maas expose what life was really like as an ad woman on Madison Avenue in the 60s & 70s.
Wickedly funny and full of juicy inside information, Jane Maas has created THE book that, according to best-selling novelist Anne Tolstoi Wallach, “tells the fascinating truth
about mad men and the women in their boardrooms and bedrooms.”
Jane Maas has been an audience sell-out all across the country! She's traveling to 40 cities during a 90 day period, and will be making a stop in Houston at this May AAFH luncheon.
Will you be joining us?

THE MADWOMEN QUIZ SHOW!
We learned in her book that Jane Mass began her career as a Quiz Show producer and decided to do a QUIZ SHOW of our own! This week, we asked 3 questions on Facebook and Twitter and encouraged all to answer for a chance to win a free ticket to the luncheon.
We have our QUIZ SHOW winner for this week! Congratulations Phillip White!
Stay tuned for another Quiz Show next week! The questions are posted on Facebook and Twitter. We will have a random drawing every Friday at noon and give away a ticket to the luncheon to a lucky participant who answers the questions correctly. You will receive one entry for each correct answer to a question!
Here are the questions and answers to this week's QUIZ SHOW:
Question One: Throughout her book, MadWomen, what four things does Jane Maas state 'hadn't been invented yet'? Answers: the term sexual harassment, panty hose, jogging, Nike
Question Two: Just a few blocks from the agency, what hotel became the favorite trysting spot for all those MadMen and MadWomen? Answer: Hotel Lexington
Question Three: Fill in the blank - "We always have to make two versions of each Vanish commercial. During the day, when only women are presumed to be at home watching television, the networks allow us to call it a “toilet bowl” cleaner. At night, we have to refer to it as “______________” cleaner. Apparently the word “_______” is not appropriate for mixed company." Answers: bathroom bowl cleaner was the term used in the evening because the word toilet was not appropriate for mixed company!
