Emily Post began her career as a writer at the age of thirty-one. Her romantic stories of European and American society were serialized in Vanity Fair, Collier’s, McCall’s, and other popular magazines. Many were also successfully published in book form. Upon its publication in 1922, her book, Etiquette, topped the nonfiction bestseller list, and the phrase “according to Emily Post” soon entered our language as the last word on the subject of social conduct. Mrs. Post, who as a girl had been told that well-bred women should not work, was suddenly a pioneering American career woman. Her numerous books, a syndicated newspaper column, and a regular network radio program made Emily Post a figure of national stature and importance throughout the rest of her life. THE EMILY POST INSTITUTE, INC., is one of America’s most unique family businesses. In addition to authoring books, the company hosts emilypost.com and etiquettedaily.com, conducts business etiquette and corporate civility seminars nationwide, and offers custom wedding invitations and social stationery in partnership with M. Middleton.Read more Read less
