Judith Jones and the Ultimate Breadmaking Book

Jacki visits Martha's Table, an after-school activity center for low income kids in Washington DC, where she talks with cookbook author Judith Jones about her book, Knead It, Punch It, Bake It: The Ultimate Breadmaking Book for Parents and Kids. (1998, Houghton Mifflin Company) Jones, who works as editor at Knopf in New York is best known for bringing about the publication of the Diary of Anne Frank after World War II and editing literary stars like John Updike and Anne Tyler. And she says teaching children about the magic of bread is one of her main passions. We also hear a letter from a 10 year old Lindsay Henderson, thanking Jones for introducing her to bread baking.
