Madeleine L’Engle – An Inspiration

September 8, 2007 at 9:45 pm 1 comment

I just found out that Madeiline L’Engle died on Thursday, September 6th. As the author of one of my very favorite books, A Wrinkle In Time, she was a huge influence on my life.
A Wrinkle In Time
Not only was her science fiction writing ingenious & thought provoking, she was excellent at writing wonderful female characters. In the gangly, awkward Meg Murry, I saw a mirror image of myself. That Meg risked her life to save her family & her father inspired me to be braver. I still read this wonderful story every few years. A great spirit, Ms. L’Engle will be missed.

    What sad news. She was such a talented author and her books entertained, reached,and resonated with so many people.

    Hope you are having fun with the swap. Did you receive the resend of the swap letter? Let me know if it still didn’t go through and I will try resending it from a different account altogether. Thanks so much!
