madeleine l'engle dead


I just learned today of Madeleine L'Engle's death in Connecticut last Thursday. Lidia is reading A Wrinkle in Time right now.


This New York Times article on L'Engle has some interesting stuff.

That is one of my all time favorite series. The world is a better place for it being written.

i love those books too. but have you ever seen the movie of wrinkle in time? DON'T. It's the most horrible movie I've ever seen.

Thanks for the warning. I would probably have watched it if I ever found it. I'm reading The Neverending Story right now. I didn't really like the movie but I'm having a great time with the book.

Thanks for the link to the article. I think her story makes a great lesson in never giving up. Many people might have thrown up their hands in despair after less than 26 rejections! Wow! It's a good thing she DIDN'T give up.

Wow. I had no idea she passed away! That's crazy.
