"Wrinkle in Time" Author Dies


Madeleine L'Engle died Thursday at age 88 of natural causes. She was most famous for her book, "A Wrinkle in Time". In her lifetime she wrote more than 60 books but never targeted one specific age group.

She won numerous awards in her lifetime including a National Humanties Medal presented to her in 2004 by President Bush.

Damnit! I, too, loved her writing. The "Wrinkle" series was wonderful. I even made sure I shared that particular pleasure with my own children. And I must say I'm glad to see her books in classrooms and school libraries still.

Take heart, my friends. The stories will live on forever.

Yeah, but they started getting weird with the Seraphim and Noah's Ark angle, I belive, it's been a while since I have read them.

Also be careful not to include your opinion in the actual story itself, but in the comments.

Yeah, I know not to put opinions in the story, but when losing someone that was influential in my childhood, I had to post the subtext.

That's sad to hear-- but that's life.

By the way- Roald Dahl Day is coming up!

Bye, Madeliene!
When I was around 11, I read "Wrinkle in Time." Even tho' I wasn't (or is) a big SF/fantasy fan, that made a big impression on me. I remember reading it twice (which I never did), late at night.
However, it's not sad, she led a good full life, and it's very likely she's on her way to Heaven.
