A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle: Madeleine L’Engle’s groundbreaking science fiction and fantasy classic, shortly to be a significant motion picture.

It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.

“Wild nights are my glory,” the unearthly stranger told them. “I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I’ll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there’s such a thing as a tesseract.”

A tesseract (if the reader doesn’t know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the pleasure of Miss L’Engle’s odd book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the narrative of the adventures in time and space of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O’Keefe (athlete, student, and among the most popular boys in high school). They are searching for Meg’s father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract issue.

About Madeleine L’Engle

Rather than her school work, she discovered that she’d much rather be writing stories, poems, and journals for herself, which had reflected in her grades (maybe not the best). But she was not discouraged.

At age 12, she moved to the French Alps and her parents and went to an English boarding school where, mercifully, her passion for writing continued to rise. She flourished through her high school years ago at the United States in Ashley Hall in Charleston, South Carolina, vacationing with her mum in a rambling old beach cabin on a gorgeous stretch of Florida Beach.

She moved to Smith College and studied English with some wonderful teachers as she read the screenplay and continued her creative writing. She graduated with honors and moved right into a Greenwich Village apartment in New York. She worked in the theater, where Equity union pay and a flexible schedule afforded her time to write! She released her first two books during these years–A Small Rain and Ilsa–before fulfilling Hugh Franklin, her future husband, even when she was an understudy in Anton Chekov’s The Cherry Orchard. They married during The Joyous Season.

She had a baby girl and kept on writing, eventually moving to Connecticut to lift the household away from town in a small dairy farm village with more cows than people. They bought a deceased general shop and brought it to life for nine years. They moved back to the city with three kids, and Hugh revitalized his professional acting career.

As the decades passed and the children climbed, Madeleine continued to write and Hugh to act, and they to enjoy one another and life. Madeleine began her affiliation with the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, in which she was the librarian and maintained an office for more than thirty years. After Hugh died in 1986, it had been her writing and lecturing that kept her moving. She lived throughout the 20th century and into the 21st and composed over 60 publications. She loved being with her friends, children, mother, and great-grandchildren.
