Tupperware! tells the remarkable story of Earl Silas Tupper, an ambitious but reclusive small-town inventor, and Brownie Wise, the self-taught saleswoman who built him an empire out of bowls that burped.  Brownie was an intuitive marketing genius who trained a small army of Tupperware Ladies to put on Tupperware parties in living rooms across America in the 1950s. Her saleswomen earned thousands, even millions of dollars, selling Tupperware.  And the experience changed their lives.

Tupperware! traces the dramatic story of Brownie’s rise froma hardscrabble southern childhood to her spectacular fall in the glare of the national press.
