Madeleine L’Engle – An Inspiration
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.
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.
November 29, 1918 – September 6, 2007
