This month's reading selection is: "The Banquet Years: The Origins of the Avant-Garde in France - 1885 to World War I "
Author: Roger Shattuck
Description: Portrays the cultural bohemia of turn-of-the-century Paris who carried the arts into a period of renewal and accomplishment, and who laid the ground-work for Dadaism and Surrealism, the social and philosophic foundations of modern art, and presents a theory that is at once comprehensive and convincing.
