Young Readers confront morality in ‘Fingertips’

Young Readers confront morality in ‘Fingertips’

What happens when your greatest gift means you can cheat with impunity?

That is the dilemma facing the young protagonist in Meg Wolitzer’s The Fingertips of Duncan Dorfman. The 2011 book is the Young Readers Program’s first selection for the season. Wolitzer will appear at 4:15 p.m. today in the Alumni Hall Garden Room to discuss her book.

“I like the way I could incorporate ideas of very low-level fantasy in the book with issues of morality,” the author said.
