Madeleine L’Engle


Wow . . . . Madeleine L’Engle died yesterday. I read her book ‘A Wrinkle in Time‘ way back in junior high; I was about 12. I bought a boxed set of four of her books last year that included ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ and reread it in one sitting on a Saturday. It was THE book that got me started in science fiction and fantasy reading. I ran across an interview Ms L’Engle did with Newsweek from 2004 in relation to production of the book into a television movie. She had a website as well.

NPR had a small bit today on L’Engle’s ‘legacy’ as well as a link to the interview she gave for the then-upcoming ‘A Wrinkle in Time‘ TV movie.
