Putting Modernism Together by Daniel Albright
Putting Modernism Together by Daniel Albright
In Putting Modernism Together, the author argues human culture can best be understood as a growth-pattern or ramifying of artistic, intellectual, and political action. Going beyond merely explaining how the artists in these genres achieved their peculiar effects, he presents challenging new analyses of telling craft details which help students and scholars come to know more fully this bold age of aesthetic extremism.

More About the Author

Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp are cooks, book enthusiasts and friends. Seeking to combine their passion for books, food, and book clubs, they met over stacks of books and endless cups of coffee at a local sandwich shop, where THE BOOK CLUB COOKBOOK was born. The first cookbook for book clubs, THE BOOK CLUB COOKBOOK has become a classic guide to pairing food and literature. The revised edition of THE BOOK CLUB COOKBOOK was released in 2012.

Judy and Vicki were motivated to write their second book, THE KIDS' BOOK CLUB BOOK, after librarians, parents, and teachers who attended their talks asked for a similar book for the growing number of youth book clubs across the country.

Their third book, TABLE OF CONTENTS features book related recipes from fifty of today's most popular authors.

Judy and Vicki enjoy speaking about book clubs and appreciate their ongoing conversations, both in person and via their websites, with book and food enthusiasts across the country.

They live with their families in the Boston area.

Format: Paperback
As a do-it-your-selfer, I used to pick up these kinds of books and think to myself, "I could do this, I could come up with these ideas, I don't need to buy this book!" However, over the last couple of years, I've realized that sometimes it is just wonderful to have someone else do the legwork. And this book is filled with interesting, fun ideas that would be useful to anyone planning a book club - for a classroom, an after school program, for the neighborhood, for homeschool groups, ecetera.

The book begins with advice about setting up a book club, deciding who should be in it and which books will be read.

Then it is divided into sections that recommend books for elementary readers (10 books); middle school readers (gr. 5-7; 23 books); young teen readers (gr. 6-8; 11 books); and advanced readers (gr. 9+; 6 books).

The books span the years, some being modern and some having stood the test of time. Each book is followed by a brief summary, author notes, relevant recipes, several activity ideas (crafts, service projects, etc...), and discussion questions. Quotes and comments from various book clubs around the country are also included.

Personally, I would have preferred more meat about the recommended book authors, rather than the 2 or 3 bullet points the book contains.

I also think this book should have been three books, one targeting elementary kids, one targeting middle readers/young teens, and one targeting high school kids. As it is, the main audience seems to be middle readers/young teens as they get 34 of the 50 books. If you are looking for more ideas for younger elementary kids, you might want to check out the Five in a Row series of books, which contain lots of hands-on ideas for classic picture books that would interest children K-3.

Anyway, quibbles aside, I think this book is well worth the money, and is a good read for book lovers to boot.

This book is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in beginning a kids' book club. The book ideas, activities and recipes are well thought out and enticing. This is a 'must have' for teacher, librarians, or anyone interested in literature for children and young adults.

My seven-year-old daughter and I belong to a book group together.

Yup, that's right, me and my first-grader are reading all the classics this summer - Junie B. Jones and Katie Kazoo!!

I figure we'll leave War and Peace for second grade!
But believe it or not, kids' book clubs, both with and without parents, are a growing phenomenon.

Sure, it's easy to attract us grown-ups to our own clubs - that way we at least have an excuse for reading something other than the school hand-outs that come home in our kids' backpacks or the cooking instructions on our dinner from Trader Joe's. But sometimes children need a little organized encouragement to learn to enjoy reading and a book club experience can be just the nudge that some students need.If you're looking for inspiration to start one for you own child (and friends), The Kids' Book Club Book is a wonderful resource.

This hefty volume is divided into chapters that cover how to create a successful children's book club and is divided into sub-chapters by age and book. But it doesn't stop there, because for the younger crowd, cultivating interest in a book sometimes takes a smidge more than just handing them the volume. The Kids' Book Club Book (by the authors of the The Book Club Cookbook), is packed with ideas for crafts, community activities, recipes and discussion tips to make each reading experience come to life and have some relevance to the kids themselves.

"Author Scoops" are also included, giving the background on the lives of the authors, stories about what motivated them to write the books they did, and even notes from the authors themselves.

"The Kid's Book Club Book" is a fantastic resource that includes reading ideas, recipes, activities, and tips for organizing book clubs for children. It was written by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp, who also coauthored "The Book Club Cookbook". If you've thought about starting a book club, but you feel it's too much work or you don't have the time to plan activities, think again. This guide contains all that you need to get started, except the actual books!

The book is organized into two parts. Part One is all about logistics. The authors surveyed 500 book club facilitators from all over the country to gather input. Comments from these facilitators are sprinkled liberally throughout the book, and complement the text nicely. The authors first discuss different types of groups. You might want a coed group, or one devoted to boys or girls only. You might want to consider an intergenerational group, with parents as well as kids participating. Perhaps the group will be for a certain grade level only, or for a specific age range. Pros and cons of various types of groups are well covered. Also in chapter one, you will find information on where to meet, how to recruit members, when to schedule meetings (what time of day, and how often to meet), and how to obtain funding. Chapter two is all about choosing books for your group. Some clubs have members vote on selections, while others have assigned books which are hand picked by the adult moderators. Chapter three contains very helpful advice on how to draw kids into conversation and encourage every member to voice their opinions. Finally, Part One wraps up with creative ideas on how to energize your club. Some clubs take field trips, or make foods that tie in with the book or it's setting.
