In Memoriam: Madeleine L’Engle

I just got the news today, that Madeleine L'Engle, author of the young adult favorite, A Wrinkle in Time, passed away on Friday.

Ms. L'Engle first wrote A Wrinkle in Time over 45 years ago, yet it's impact is still felt today. It's one of those books that opens a child's eyes to the power of imagination and the joys of reading. Though I can't remember the details of the story clearly, I still remember sitting at my desk in grade school using spare moments to catch a few more pages of A Wrinkle in Time.

Ms. Le'Engle may have passed on, but her books are still popular in classrooms for the joy they bring to students.
