Reel Reading for Real Readers: The Goldfinch

ReelReading2This is by far the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time. Check out this Pinterest board with all the art mentioned in the new Pulitzer Prize winning book The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.

Oh, my lovely!

Art in the Goldfinch

I tried an audio book for the first time, and I am kicking myself for waiting so long to “read” this way. Maybe it’s this book. I don’t know, but the descriptions fascinate me. Maybe that’s why the artwork posted on this Pinterest board fascinates me so.

I love this novel, and I cannot wait to share it with students. At one point the narrator even refers to his AP English class. I have some students who will love this book as much as I do.

I cannot wait for us to talk about it — oh, and all this art!

    Thanks for the comment, Lisa. Recently, I created my “Ideal Bookshelf.” THE GOLDFINCH is definitely on it. I am now looking for poems to pair with it.

    I felt the same way as I read this book last year! I even read passages aloud to my students. Sharing what we love is such an important part of teaching! Thank you for reminding me of this novel, as I collect books to share with students next year!
