Beginning September 14, we (anyone!) will be reading Everybody Who Was Anybody: A Biography of Gertrude Stein by Janet Hobhouse. We use Twitter to communicate with each other about the book.
I selected this book because (1) it's been sitting on my shelf for almost 20 years; (2) it's cheap!; (3) I wanted to read about a female artist; and (r) Stein was intimately involved with the greatest artists and writers of the early 20th century. Stein is a critical figure in Modernism that we should all know more about.
