  1. I’m also a devoted reader of The Millions, and I think it was your review that initially pointed me to the book, so I’m thrilled to see my project mentioned here.

    I’m not a very visual thinker, nor do I know much about art, so I was having trouble with the scene-setting at the beginning of the book. I kept googling all the pictures to try to get in my head what Theo and his mom were looking at. Then I started pinning them because I thought the other folks in my book club (which is reading the book this month) might also like to look at it. Then I got out the post-it flags and it just kind-of grew!
