Forum Book Club: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

January 30, 2015

UNC Staff are invited to join the Employee Forum book club on Friday, January 30, 2015 from 12pm-1pm at Bulls Head Book Shop. We will discuss the book The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. The book can be purchased at a special discount online here or in the store at Bulls Head Book Shop. Lunch will be provided with registration. Please email employeeforum@unc.edu if you have special dietary concerns. Publisher’s description: Theo Decker, a 13-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 longing for his mother, he clings to the one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art. As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love–and at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle. The Goldfinch is a mesmerizing, stay-up-all-night and tell-all-your-friends triumph, an old-fashioned story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the ruthless machinations of fate. – See more at: http://www.hachettebookgroup.com/titles/donna-tartt/the-goldfinch/9780316055437/#desc.
