Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

The DZB Chronicles

A kidnapping, a murder, a jailbreak. Of this we’re Winnie Foster’s story only, it would be like any other great adventure: you would come to the end, with all resolved, and that would be that. But this is also the story of the Tuck family and therefore, though it has a beginning and an middle, it can never end. I he two stories cross near the village of Treegap during a handful of hot August days in the 1880’s, days which are a curious mixture of violence and love, of anguish and tranquility. And when those days are over, young Winnie is left to make a fundamental choice. What she chooses at last is not what she might have chosen at first. For when you have known the Tucks as Winnie has, however briefly, you can never be quite the same again.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/tony-polito/support

Reading During Recess

It’s time to talk about one of Sarah’s favorite books of all time: Natalie Babbit’s Tuck Everlasting. We discuss whether Winnie Foster is an ecofeminist heroine, why the book is so much better than the movie, and whether drinking from the fountain of youth is okay IF a really cute boy asks you to do it.

35 - Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

A Novel Adaptation

What would you do if you lived forever? Would you even want to? Disney found a way to make it look enticing - once again giving us unrealistic expectations about life. Check out our predictions of how we die and what we would do if we had all the time in the world. Alexis Bledel is perfect for this role, a wild Victor Garber appears and we remember our younger selves oogling a discount Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Episode Drink:  The Fountain of Youth 2.5 oz of vodka .25 oz of simple syrup 2 sprigs of mint 4 slices of cucumber Instructions Combine vodka and simple syrup in a mixing glass along with sprigs of mint and three slices of cucumber. Muddle the mint and three slices of cucumber. Add ice and stir to chill. Strain into martini glass and float the last cucumber slice on top of the drink as a garnish. Recipe From: CocktailBuilder.com Our Drinking Game for this Story  Take a drink: Every time the man in the yellow suit is creepy Whenever you think about all the things you could do if you lived forever When you remember that it is a bad idea and this book is warning you away from that Knock back your drink when you realize life is fleeting. We all live; we all die; and we don’t have enough time.  Fantastic Reads: Jordan: The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang Em: Shrill by Lindy West A Novel Adaptation was created by Emily Eppley and Jordan Redwine. See more details at www.anoveladaptation.com and see what’s coming up next to read along with us.
