Hear & Now @ The MAC: Jane MaasAugust 28, 2012
Our book reading series continues with:
Spend an evening with Jane Maas, author of Mad Women, who made her way to the top of the fabulous, but male-dominated ad world of the 1960s and ‘70s. Fans of the AMC series Mad Men will be thrilled by Jane’s wickedly funny and juicy inside stories, from the junior account man whose wife nearly left him when she found the copy of Screw magazine he’d used to find “entertainment” for a client, to the Ogilvy & Mather agency’s legendary annual sex-and-booze filled Boat Ride—but Jane Maas also draws from her captivating personal experience and countless interviews with her peers to address the toughest issues of the era: equal pay, jaw-dropping sexism, and the painful choice many women faced between motherhood and their careers.
