Charm School with Wendy Ward and John Robert Powers

Did you grow up near to a Montgomery Ward department store? If so you might be familiar with the Wendy Ward Charm Centers that were part of these stores in the 60s and 70s. Their purpose was to help America’s young girls mature into women of taste and refinement (with mixed results!). In this presentation, which can be given as a stand-alone or a companion piece to ‘Mind Your Manners’, we will practice some of the exercises in the original Wendy Ward instruction guides. We’ll also talk about John Robert Powers and his famous Powers Charm Schools.
