CapRadio Readers have been waiting a long time for The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt, and it's finally time. This book has received worldwide acclaim, and even some criticism, but everyone's talking about it.
The Goldfinch, last year's winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature, centers around 13 year old Theo Decker and his misadventures after he is injured in a terrorist attack at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. After the smoke clears, Theo, on the advice of a dying victim of the bombing, takes the painting by Fabritius called The Goldfinch and leaves the museum with the only thing he has that will remind him of his late mother. There begins our journey.
Please join us in reading this outstanding book, and then come to our discussion. We'll meet at Capital Public Radio on June 9th at 6:00 pm to drink a little wine, eat some snacks and talk about The Goldfinch. Hope to see you there.
