Madeleine LEngle, author of “A Wrinkle in Time” has died. Many of us will remember reading this Newbery Medal book. Not a big fan of fantasy and science fiction, this is one of the few in that genre that I have read and enjoyed. In my earlier days as an Asst. Children/Young Adult Librarian, I recommended this book to many a reluctant reader with positive results.
Though labeled a children’s author, L’Engle always insisted that she did not write down to children. In her own words, “I never write for any age group in mind…When you underestimate your audience, you’re cutting yourself off from your best work.”
