Book Club – The Goldfinch

Thursday, January 23, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

JANUARY 23. THE GOLDFINCH BY DONNA TARTT

The Goldfinch won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, among other honors. It begins with a boy. Theo Decker, a thirteen-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don’t know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his unbearable longing for his mother, he clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.
