This month we are reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. We picked this book because we loved The Secret History, also by Donna Tartt, and heard there’s a movie version of The Goldfinch coming out next year (starring Nicole Kidman and Ansel Elgort).
The story includes a visit to the Met, a beautiful Manhattan mom, a terrorist attack, and a Dutch (art) masterpiece. The Goldfinch was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2014, Amazon Best Book of the Year in 2013, and a handful of other awards.
We’re taking two months to read this one because it is over 700 pages long, but we will be meeting at the Met Friday, 7/27 in lieu of our July meetup.
