The Algonquin Round Table

Dorothy Parker was a founding member of what has been called "The Algonquin Round Table." Investigate the origins of this group and share your discoveries with the class. What inspired the original meetings of this group? How did the group develop? What famous authors were "members" of the Round Table? How did these members contribute to the work of their fellow writers? Search online and find photographs of the meeting place and the hotel. How has it changed since the days of Dorothy Parker?


Choose one of Dorothy Parker's stories and develop a soundtrack for it. Think of the mood of the story and the author's tone. Also consider the perspectives of the different characters. What songs would best complement the story? (Consider both the lyrics and the music.) Be prepared to explain your choices.
