Friday, September 7


Author Madeleine L'Engle, whose novel "A Wrinkle in Time" has been enjoyed by generations of schoolchildren and adults since the 1960s, has died, her publicist said Friday. She was 88.


Meg Murry, Vicky Austin, Adam Eddington, Poly O'Keefe, and Charles Wallace Murry were all my friends growing up. I pored over the volumes of Madeleine L'Engle as a child, and I still enjoy her books as an adult. Now my kids read them too. Together we wonder what it would be like to have Mr. Jenkins as a teacher. Soon they will be mature enough to wonder, like I did, if Canon Tallis was too good to be true.

She will be missed!

How sad. I love her books and I had Katya listen to her books on CD several years ago. They are captivating.

Maybe she went through a tesseract. Loved her book. :(

Oh, I didn't see that! I read all her books, too, even the bad ones. I always kind of hoped to run into her at the cathedral of st john the divine. Assuming of course I ever made it to New York.
