madeleine-lengle.jpgOne of my very favorite authors passed away last week.  Madeleine L'Engle died on September 6 at the age of 88.  L'Engle is probably best know for her Newbery award-winning book, A Wrinkle in Time.  She wrote more than 60 books for children and adults, including fiction, science fiction, poetry, plays, autobiographical works, and meditations on faith and art.

The world has lost a gifted writer, but the books she left behind will be cherished by many for years and years to come.  If you haven't read any of Madeleine's books, I recommend you check out A Wrinkle in Time the next time you are in the library.
